 I would read such backend behaviour to be in non-compliance with RFC2616.

 You are right that this can be done in VCL, so I don't think there is any
 benefit from doing anything about it in the varnish source code.

 This is probably something that belongs in documentation/FAQ more than
 anything else.

 Notice that an easier way to do this might be to construct the missing
 Vary: header in vcl_fetch, provided that you know what your backend does
 Vary on.
