Interestingly IETF discourages the use of X prefixed headers but they might still suite this kind of behavior http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6648

I'm sorry if this is obvious. What does the verb "to suite" mean?

*I'm not trying to be pedantic, genuinely curious if it is a word I do not know.

I think "suit" was intended.

It's a very recent RFC from June 2012.

It was promoted from Draft with great celerity. I think they'd like it if folk stopped using X- sort of nowish.

Edit: on second thoughts, it's the IETF, they always move quick. And it's not as though this was a particularly thorny protocol or anything.
