All I'm saying is that, iirc, the intent of force-response-1.0 is
to force a 1.0 response and disable keepalives... it was designed
to work around buggy browsers that had problems with 1.1 features,
including wonky 1.0-type keepalives.

If someone wants to create force-response-1.0-with-keepalives
that does what force-response-1.0 does but allows for the potential
of keepalives, then I'm fine with that. But changing how
force-response-1.0 behaves is *sure* to cause problems for those
who depend on the current behavior.
