It is just an edge case, but when using the XMLHttpRequest
setRequestHeader()[1] what are the rules for over-riding existing

For example, what if you are already authenticated and called
setRequestHeader('Authorization', 'blah')?

Does the rule for concatenation apply to headers
not created by setRequestHeader?
