Assuming that all those headers were encoded based on the a previous
request, the incremental cost of having to index the extra name-value
pairs is 10k (at 2 bytes per reference) at the absolute extreme if we
remove '\0'.  That's generous in the extreme.  Any that appear once do
not benefit from '\0'; any that appear on different connections do not
benefit; and any that have changing values do not benefit.

If you really care, a header field that uses valid syntax can be
concatenated with a comma.
