Exactly (and support mod_headers's optional cond var).

The example that fixes the DAV problem above can be stated as

  RequestHeader edit Destination ^https: http:

Otherwise, one can dream up mod_rewrite like cases; e.g.
(modulo line wrap)

  Header edit Location ^http://([a-z0-9-]+)\.example\.com/$1/

(not sure if that makes sense, but you get my meaning:-)
