Not at all since the above does not meet the other requirements of the
spec. The spec says it should be a configurable option, which, IMO,
means one that can be changed. Doesn't say run-time or compile-time.
Since they have access to the code, they can comment out the bits
that build Server:

I'm NOT saying that this is how _I_ would interpret it. I would
prefer ServerToken None. I'm just saying that I'm sure some people
would response as above and have a defendable position.
