True, if this is a valid HTTP/0.9 request.  But my thesis is that there 
are some browsers out there who are really HTTP/1.0 browsers and not 
stating it.  And I was validated - all the following browsers do not send 
"HTTP/1.0" in at least some of their requests:

IBM WebExplorer /v950331 Beta
Lynx/2.3 BETA  libwww/2.14
Lynx/2.3.6 BETA  libwww/2.14
Lynx/2.3.7 BETA  libwww/2.14
Lynx/USiS Lynx 2.3  libwww/2.14
Lynx/ALynx_2.3 AmigaPort 1.13  libwww/unknown
MacWeb/1.00ALPHA3  libwww/2.17
Mozilla/0.96 Beta (Windows)
Mozilla/1.0N (Windows)
