That's a good point and I kind of agree. It's just that practically, some of the UA scaffolding for handling Application-layer errors (sometimes referred to as network errors) are not in place or mature. I was reminded recently of the W3C work on Network Error Logging [1] that maybe helps in such cases?

My other thought process was that a single client error may not be cause for a connection error, rather a pattern of behaviour could cause the connection to be closed. However, on reflection in this case from the purest perspective I agree.
