Yes, and in fact if we were talking about a brand new protocol, I'd
probably argue in favor of putting the compression specifier in the
Transfer-Encoding.  I think a change in the semantics of
Content-Encoding in HTTP/1.1 might be a way to obtain similar benefits
without breaking existing software.
