That's just FYI.  What matters is not the Apache documentation,
but the public internetworking specs: RFC2616 (HTTP), and the
MIME one whose number I don't recollect without looking it up.

So what the apache documentation is really telling you is how
an Internet-compliant browser works.  It qualifies that by noting
that some browsers may be broken.
