Is there a way to tell IIS to emit the header "Accept-Ranges: none" instead of "Accept-Ranges: bytes"?

According to this thread, it is not possible to disable byte-range processing (therefore the Accept-Ranges header) in IIS using the standard handlers.

If you were to develop a custom handler, you could of course disable the header.
