[AusNOG] X-Forwarded-For vs RFC 7239

Just looking for a sanity check on current HTTP proxy headers. My
understanding is X-Forwarded-For is widely deployed, widely parsed, and not
standard. RFC 7239 is a (proposed) standard, barely deployed, and mostly
ignored. Would best practice, going forward, be to include both headers (if
you were say, writing i-rules for such things)?

Kind regards
