It can be discussed.

On one hand, the Host field has a special meaning for the protocol, unlike
User-Agent that is only used for logging, so it makes sense to give it a
special meaning.

On the other hand, if there is a mechanism to access all fields, there is no
reason to have a special case for it.

Actually, I suspect you could have written the code for the AVDictionary
(with a hardcoded total size limit to avoid DoS, for now) in the time before
my reply.
