actually you could just close the tcp connection without any notice,
clients (IE with their unbelievebly uninformative error messages)
make any difference... :)


 I think it would be a bad idea to let standards evolve
 on bad existing software.
 Perhaps you should look at the Millions of Dollars lost
 on 'Internet productivity and functionality' by good old MS :
 take for examle :
     - Outlook Express with the VBS nightmare.
     - IIS with 'dramatic security problems'
     - IE ...

 Let's not encourage them, to keep polluting the Internet.
