ABSOLUTELY! This was an issue when I wrote the Windows httpd documentation. Furthermore,
we aren't writing "gateways" all the time either, so it should be Common ???? Interface.
The HTTP protocol, including the "extra header" capability, can be used for virtually
limitless applications, not just serving HTML documents and related services.
