Strict date equality for If-Modified-Since comparison?

After a few tests of unsuccessful attempts to trigger a 304 with nginx
0.6.1 with If-Modified-Since, I thrown an eye to the source...
>From my understanding nginx returns a 304 only if If-Modified-Since
matches exactly Last-Modified.
Apache is more liberal and returns a 304 for any date greater or equals
than the last-modified.
Is-it not too strict?
I know that RFC2616 (section 14.25) adds a note about comparison and does
not enforce any specific methods...
