in thread undef-ing $ENV{'REMOTE_USER'} from within Perl?

the RFC does not explicitly state that there must be a method for ending a session

Well, that's kind of logical, isn't? HTTP is a stateless, sessionless protocol. Hence, the RFC will not give you methods to end sessions - there are no sessions to begin with. You might want to kludge sessions on top of HTTP one way or the other (there are ways, cookies being a popular kludge), but that's outside the HTTP protocol itself.
