 It is totally ridiculous that there in no way in the world to stop
 WordPress from sending a X-Pingback header, short from ripping up the
 source code.

 You have hardwired it in to the headers as if it was the sun and moon.
 function send_headers() {
         @header('X-Pingback: '. get_bloginfo('pingback_url'));
 There is no hook, no variable, no nothing provided to stop sending
 such stupid headers in the case one does not want to.

 See also #7324, #5311.

 You can say ho hum it doesn't matter, thinking maybe the
 professionality of one's website is only judged by CSS.

 But you are wrong.
