As I understand it (from the 1.0 spec), the client and server are not required
to close the connection after the transfer of the first document, but are
allowed to close the connection at any time they feel like it, for any reason.
This includes the server closing the connection because 'I've been talking to
you for too long'.

i.e. no negotation is used, or is even needed. (Except to tell the other
party what to expect).
