This is what I did locally so I could continue testing. But
unfortunately, it's is very likely that there are more broken servers
around. The permissive flag seems like an "all-or-nothing", so I think
Thien-Thi's suggestion sounds pretty reasonable: for all headers
checks, give a default but let user specify their owns (if I
understood that correctly). In my case I would just provide a #t for
the date check.
