Of course not, this is completely valid.

The server must:
- return the highest protocol version it supports
- close the connection to indicate the end of the response if the 
content-length is not set

I'm wondering why you're desperately trying to find things to fix in 
Coyote HTTP/1.1, which AFAIK is quite good in terms of HTTP compliance. 
There are still things that can be improved in there, such as the 
compression support (but I plan to help, since I'm done with my 5.0.x 
feature list), but these are not critical features.
If I could choose, I'd prefer you help fix issues on Jasper, since you 
know it well and there are still bugs to fix ;-)
