I overhauled mod_headers for Apache v2.0, so I am pretty confident it is 
a bug. I will look at it sometime this weekend.

Looking at RFC2616, I don't see any reference to a character set 
restriction in the headers (but I may have missed it). RFC2616 describes 
the field-content of a header as:

<the OCTETs making up the field-value
and consisting of either *TEXT or combinations
of token, separators, and quoted-string>

It goes on to say that leading and trailing whitespace is ignored, and 
whitespace interspersed in the header may be replaced with a single 
space character, but other than that there is no mention of any 
character set restrictions.
