In fairness, I've run into a lot of actual, real-life webserver code 
(usually Java Servlet based cough Oracle cough) that requires, at 
minimum, a Host: and Accept: header. Annoying, but I guess...

However as another person points out, this fails with real, browser, 
HTTP requests. The "nc" was just a convenient way of showing it ;o)
