It has always been like this: processing for error pages and status 
report pages has to occur later. It's the same for other similarly 
worded mechanisms, such as sendError, sendRedirect, etc.

It is the best and only acceptable behavior from a usability standpoint, 

There are other areas where I think implementing the letter of the 
specification turned out completely wrong, such as the charset handling 
that Jan implemented some time before (aka, forcing the addition of a 
charset even if none was specified whenever a writer is being used).
