The current architecture is based on the assumption that the creation of 
the response header must be completely finished before the creation of 
the response body starts. I.e. that response header creation must be 
done in the setup rather than in the pipeline execution. I think (but 
haven't checked all possible consequences) that this is an unnecessarily 
restrictive assumption. AFAICS it would be enough to require that the 
creation (and output) of the response header is finished before the 
response body starts to be emitted.

With such a less restrictive assumption, it would be OK to set response 
headers as I suggested above.
