I have read the discussion on bug 15356, and I saw that some changes were made
to the spec probably because of those discussions, but I believe that WebKit is
still not conforming to the spec and not only that, but due to its behavior
makes it difficult for JavaScript developers to distinguish between missing and
empty headers, while the spec makes that easy and I also do not believe that
changing this behavior should cause major compatibility issues.
If nobody dares to break with a bad legacy, progress will die, and furthermore
things will become worse and worse, as mistakes will keep creeping in over the
