Ok; now I have a better sense.  For Mozilla, please do install the
http-headers add-in, so you can see what is being transmitted.

   It cannot be assumed that indices are common across all nodes in a
   zone (see Section 6).  Hence, the format MUST be used only within a
   node and MUST NOT be sent on the wire unless every node that
   interprets the format agrees on the semantics.

I read this to say that zone_id's should not be propogated in httpd
headers.  There is another question of whether the %zone_id should be
permitted in proxy machine names, listen directives, etc.

Can you spell out for us if Mozilla and IE refuse to let you specify
the %zone_id in the request, and if so, do they try to pass it on in
the Host; header (look using common sniffing tools such as the http
headers add-in)?
