Are you sure that is right? That strcasecmp won't match x-gzip.

On the legality: there is a SHOULD requirement in 2616 that x-gzip is
treated equivalent to gzip but if everything else you said is right,
you would seem to have provided a good rationale for *not* treating
x-gzip and gzip the same...
