intermediary MUST NOT use a request version greater than they support


This test clause tests the following 2 requirement(s).

  1. "Since the protocol version indicates the protocol capability of the sender, a proxy/gateway MUST NOT send a message with a version indicator which is greater than its actual version" (rfc2616)
  2. "If a higher version request is received, the proxy/gateway MUST either downgrade the request version, or respond with an error, or switch to tunnel behavior" (rfc2616)
