No, you are not missing anything. The question to me was: Do we need to close
a keepalive on the main request just because a subrequest failed in the middle
of the response?
Or to be more precise: Should the behaviour to cut off the keepalive be the default
behaviour in such cases with the chance for subrequest creators to remove the error
bucket and to make the response cacheable again or should it be the other way round
that the subrequest creator is reponsible for preventing caching and closing the
keepalive by sending the error bucket by himself if he thinks that this is needed?
While writing this I personally come to the conclusion that the 1. proposal
(sending the error bucket) is saver as a default behaviour.
