Yes, it is (or at least should be) possible to implement the entire
HTTP/1.1 feature set within HTTP/1.0, provided that it obeys the parts
that say "must not send this to an HTTP/1.0 application" (note, however,
that an HTTP/1.0 server can send those features to an HTTP/1.1 application).

In fact, that will be the strategy after Apache 1.1 is released -- everything
for HTTP/1.1 needs to be impemented and tested (as HTTP/1.0) before we
can change the version number output [after the IESG decision].  My goal
is to have a server ready to distribute on the same day as the IESG approval.
