have meaning in the name of the header (rather than just the value).
This proved to a bit confusing, so I was asked to write it up. I


When I did, the best example for how _not_ to do things is the way in
which we are currently doing microversion headers.

So two questions:

* Is my position on header non proliferation right?
* Is it so right that we should consider doing microversions
