I think the wording of the Note is confusing as to who is closing an
input connection.  Here are some proposed different words:

Note: Server implementations that use TCP SHOULD ensure that the client
acknowledges receipt of the packet(s) containing its response before it
closes its input connection. Otherwise, if the client continues to send
data after the server has closed the input connection, the server's
controller will send a reset packet to the client, which may erase
unacknowledged packets in the client's input buffers before it can read
and interpret them.
