By "invalid" do you mean any string that doesn't comply with 723x's 
Last-Modified definition? Even if the only non-compliance is the use of 
a non-GMT timezone?

I'm not personally a fan of all the strange date formats handled by the
parse_rfc() function, but it seems like timezone translation is 
something we can easily/usefully/safely do.

In my opinion, turning a completely invalid string (e.g. "Last-Modified: 
blahblahblah") into a current Last-Modified stamp *is* interpretation. 
We'd be attaching a Last-Modified value to a resource that doesn't 
really deserve one.
