I mentioned that when I showed the patch to the list, and I do prefer
to see the status code in the response since the reason-phrase is not
a reliable indicator of the status (i.e., an Apache server in France is
likely to change it).

Perhaps it would be better if the TITLE contained the status code and
the H1 did not.
