Question arising during implementation: 

A hypothetical http server receives a GOAWAY from a client with no streams open. Should it attempt to send a GOAWAY back or can it safely close the connection?

rfc 7540. 6.8 seems to say that endpoints SHOULD always send a GOAWAY. But it seems not useful in such a case. Probably I am overlooking something?
