Apache is sending back a message that is in HTTP/1.0.

1.0 clients are supposed to ingore any headers they don't recognise which
might be HTTP/1.1 specific.

That statement doesn't say it must respond with the same protocol number
or identification, just that the *message* must be in the same protocol
version which it is. The definition of a message does not restrict the
version number to 1.0 or lower.
