Re: HTTP/2 response completed before its request

are you suggesting that as required or reasonable client behavior?

It's definitely reasonable. But it seems plausible to build an application
that doesn't cancel (perhaps these data segments are the moral equivalent
of FYI trailers that don't impact the response generation)- I don't see a
reason to require the cancel.

The only firm bug there seems to be the server not sending updates.
