Nope, sorry - that's why I called it a guess. I know of people using  
URIs to name non-IRs who either disagree with httpRange-14, or do not  
know about it, or cannot arrange for 303s, so there is some  
noncompliance out there.  Even if penetration is prettty high, a few  
bad apples will spoil the bunch, in situations where it matters (not  
that I know what those are, but I assume they exist).

Of course it would be delightful if there were perfect compliance.
