Yes, but XHDR and XOVER are hard coded into too many existing agents, so
servers will need to provide them for many years to come (probably as just
synonyms for HDR and OVER). RFC 2980 remains as the justification for
their existence. I would expect servers that provide them to include
XHDR and XOVER in their CAPABILITIES.
This might be worth a brief mention somewhere, but I don't think any
2980bis is called for.
