It's only going to be big if the server chooses to make it big. This 
seems equally bad as the server sending any other nonsensical-but-valid 
responses in any other format, such as including a huge unrelated header 
in a HEAD response.

Or am I miss understanding the problem. If so, please elaborate what you 
are worried will happen.
