One way to think about it is to reflect that streaming media is not
really HTTP (which was originally designed to transfer entire files).
Streaming is yet another protocol that sits on top of TCP/IP (along with
SMTP, DNS, HTTP, etc...) The last time I looked, RTSP was the flavour of
the month (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_Time_Streaming_Protocol).

In principle, you shouldn't really expect an HTTP server to deliver a
streaming media feed any more than you should expect it to receive mail.
That it apparently can be done is a bonus :-)
