The section on setRequestHeader isn't really clear on what headers a

Can setRequestHeader override these headers if the resource isn't
cached, or if the method is one cacheing doesn't apply to (such as
POST)? I suggest deleting the stuff about cacheing ( - it's
implementation details subject to more logic that we can easily put
into this paragraph anyway - ) and saying
> UAs may set the If-Modified-Since, If-None-Match, If-Range, and Range headers.
> Scripts must not be allowed to override or add these headers.
..if that's the policy we want, that is :-p Run discussion..
