To be precise, 6904 says an answerer MUST NOT accept both encrypted and unencrypted versions of the same header (in the same answer).  I think option b) should say that Implementations MUST be prepared to accept either encrypted and unencrypted.  [I.e., I agree with Martin, whose e-mail came in while I was writing this.]

If we go this way, there’s then a W3C question of whether to provide an API knob to choose between the encrypted and unencrypted version of the header extension.
