Sure there are lots of other ways to get it. You could ask the admin
to tell it to you over the phone. You could develop a new protocol
just for delivering last-modified, etc ;-)

But no, there is no other way to get it over HTTP.

Very often, the absence of a last-modified header is an indication
that the content is created dynamically for each request, or that the
last-modified time can't be easily determined. But of course,
sometimes it is absent just because the app developer was too lazy to
properly pass it through.
