I think it's time to thing about bringing HTTP some cocoa and putting it to
bed. I've argued before that HTTP has severe enough problems in its basic
design model to make it unsuitable as a basis for serious future development-
it might be better to just document the protocol as it's actually implemented
(using the usual criteria of two independent implementations) and documenting
that much simpler protocol as the real HTTP.

Yeah, but at least you got rewarded for all the bad ones :-)
