Connection: Keep-Alive  header has different meaning.

It is needed only when you have Keep-Alive: header as well so that
"Keep-Alive" header value is not lost at proxies.

Keep alive feature of HTTP/1.1 does not need to be specified in the
response. It is "on" by default. See RFC2616 aka HTTP/1.1

By the way:
1. You are missing quotes around "-1". The above is broken XML.
2. You will get the same response even if you remove the
maxKeepAliveRequests attribute.
