That's not the case.  HTTP pipelining is the feature that permit
requests to be sent before responses have been received.  However,
responses have to be returned in order.

A few years ago an HTTP extension was defined to support out-of-order
responses, but it wasn't widely adopted because it was
backwards-incompatibile with existing software.
