Hi Eric

wrt your second point, it's been my understanding that if you are
using name based virtual hosting, then HTTP/1.0 clients will always be
directed to the first virtual host, and so it is fine to not check for
empty HTTP_HOST in name based virtual hosts, when canonicalizing the
host name. Is this accurate?
