In Sect. 12.2.1.6 and 13.1 are the approximate words:

The response MUST include a Content-Length with a value of zero (0) and
no entity body.

Isn't it sufficient to say that no entity body may be included, which,
in turn, means there's no Content-Length header?  In my reading of
11.2.2, a Content-Length: 0 implies a zero-length entity body, not the
absence of an entity body.
