The suggestion was that the date came in the "incoming" client supplied HTTP
header, not the server returned HTTP header.  If the parenthetical comment
"(where it is always present)" is not correct, then we can just delete the
parenthetical comment.

I don't think you can count on that.  From draft-ietf-http-v11-spec-rev-06,
section 14.18 Date: "If the server does not have a clock that can provide a
reasonable approximation of the current time, its responses MUST NOT
include a Date header field.
