"Since the 205 status code implies that no additional content will be 
provided in the payload, the server MUST send a message body of zero 
length. In other words, the server MUST send a "Content-Length: 0" field 
in a 205 response or close the connection immediately after sending the 
blank line terminating the header section."

So would using Chunked Encoding be illegal? I don't think that was the 
intent.

The simplest possible fix seems to drop the second sentence.

Best regards, Julian
