-The Section on Conformance Claims of the November draft of WCAG  2.0 contains the following Editorial Note:

"A question has been raised as to whether the information required in items 1-3 above should all be transmitted in the HTTP header or in some other way."

The HTTP protocol is used for the transfer of a wide variety of content types. It would therefore not be appropriate to include HTML-specific fields in the HTTP header. Furthermore, this would require an extension of the HTTP protocol specification. It would make more sense to add a field to the HTML header.
