Is there a "license-type" HTTP header standard?

Hello Creative Commons folks,
Is there a standard HTTP-header that is used for communicating license
metadata with an HTTP server response?
Like a mime-type header, only it's a license-type header?
I think this would be an imporant way to supplement the RDF metadata
that appears next to, eg, an image reference in HTML, but is not
included in the HTTP response for the image itself.
Is anyone working on a standard like this, and if not, may I propose
one? I can think of a number of tasty uses for it, such as a browser
option not to display "overly-restricted" content, or checks on what
images can be used in comments on a website.
Also, is there developer mailing-list that I can join?
