Hi,

in 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p1-messaging-16.html#rfc.section.7.1.4.p.5> 
we say:

"Servers SHOULD NOT close a connection in the middle of transmitting a 
response, unless a network or client failure is suspected."

Really? As far as I recall, it's the only way for a server to signal the 
presence of a problem once it has started to send the response body.

Best regards, Julian
