I would, in fact, recommend the opposite approach -- try 1.1 first and fall back
to 1.0 if 1.1 fails.

Subject: IPP> HTTP 1.0 usage in IPP 1.0
Given that there are proxies out there that may not handle HTTP 1.1 well, we
would like our IPP 1.0 client to try HTTP 1.0 first, and then switch to HTTP
1.1 if the first attempt fails.
Before we implement that, I would like to get a consensus on what others are
planning to do:
1) Are most people planning to support HTTP 1.0 also?
2) If not, how are you going to fail HTTP 1.0 requests?
