Anne,

Some more details that should help to clarify:

You are right we would not need any progress events and you are also
typically not interested in the response. The server should normally reply
only with a no content reply. Conceptually this reply would not be needed,
however, HTTP requires it. You can think of this type of interaction like
sending an UDP packet. You want it to be send and delivered at best
effort.
