Yep.  That was mere a fun fact I wanted to share.  Was not aware of HTTP 
specifying a non latin1 header anywhere.  I suppose the authors of the 
HTTP specification were aware of encoding issues, just that the people 
that made the Cookie specification didn't have non-ASCII payloads in 
mind.  Not too surprising, after all it's called Cookie and not 
arbitrary data-store :)
