I say that it’s a buggy web site.  :-)

More generally, we’ve added a couple of HTTP headers for issues that
were relatively common.  We could easily fix this one, but maybe you
could first talk to the webmasters, because requiring ‘Referer’ sounds
obnoxious; WDYT?

(Note that in the meantime you can always work around the problem by
writing your own fixed-output derivation.)
