First, IBM is the group you wish to talk to regarding whether or not it 
supports, alters, etc., any data.

As for the "absolutely no changes", there should be absolutely no 
changes if you DON'T put any added modules in line (e.g. output filters, 
etc) into the mix.  If you start playing with filters, the data can 
change, and it's the modules that really have control over what 
changes.  Due to the modular form of apache, apache cannot guarantee 
anything.  If you REALLY want absolute control, write your own web server.

Again, if you desire to know what the IBM-compiled web server is capable 
of, please contact them.  On this list, you may only get "unofficial" 
and "word-of-mouth" answers, which may or may not be accurate.  It 
shouldn't take a rocket scientist to understand the concept that one 
should go to the producer to understand the product.  Since IBM compiled 
it, they may have patches in there that effect the things you ask about.
