Comment:
"Once the end of the file is reached, the user agent must dispatch the event
one final time, as defined below" means an implementation may parse a partial
(corrupt) event as a final event if the connection is interrupted. Spec should
always require an explicit blank line to trigger dispatch, even at the end.
