Status Line Syntax production/parsing


(a naive question)
The syntax for the status-line of an HTTP response message is

    status-line = HTTP-version SP status-code SP reason-phrase CRLF

Then about the reason-phrase

   The reason-phrase element exists for the sole purpose of providing a
   textual description associated with the numeric status code, mostly
   out of deference to earlier Internet application protocols that were
   more frequently used with interactive text clients.  A client SHOULD
   ignore the reason-phrase content.

     reason-phrase  = *( HTAB / SP / VCHAR / obs-text )

I was wondering if there are any issues with status-line of the form:

    status-line = HTTP-version SP status-code SP


    status-line = HTTP-version SP status-code
