There is indeed a revision of HTTP/1.1 under discussion (see HTTP
mailing list <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/>, issues
list <http://www.w3.org/Protocols/HTTP/1.1/rfc2616bis/issues/> and draft
but the spelling of "referer" so far hasn't made it onto the issues list
(and I doubt it will) :-).
