For what it's worth, I'd be happy to remove support for this assuming
it doesn't "break the web".

http://www.google.com/codesearch?hl=en&lr=&q=http-equiv\s*%3D\s*%28%22|%27%29%3FLink&sbtn=Search

shows no results, but I'm not sure how much content that searches.

I feel less strongly about Set-Cookie. There is no fully equivalent
feature, so we'd have to check if people find this feature useful or
not.
