Not mandatory. From the rfc

"Clients SHOULD only send a Date header field in messages that include
    an entity-body, as in the case of the PUT and POST requests, and  
    then it is optional. A client without a clock MUST NOT send a Date
    header field in a request."

libUrl never includes one.
