RFC7233 Range Requests: Indeterminate lengths

It appears that the current HTTP/2 spec doesn't allow 206 Partial Content replies to be of indeterminate length. RFC 7233 section 4.2 requires that the "last-byte-pos" field in the Content-Range header be a number, rather than "*". It'd be convenient to allow the last byte position to be indeterminate if the requested range lacked a "last-byte-pos" field. Would this change be within the scope of HTTP/2 to make?
