cache MUST treat incomplete cached response as partial


This test clause tests the following 3 requirement(s).

  1. "However, the cache MUST treat this as a partial response" (rfc2616)
  2. "A cache MUST NOT return a partial response to a client without explicitly marking it as such, using the 206 (Partial Content) status code" (rfc2616)
  3. "A cache MUST NOT return a partial response using a status code of 200 (OK)" (rfc2616)

Developer notes

To create an incomplete response, Co-Advisor server closes the connection before all response content is sent. It would be nice to test using chunked responses as well, but that is not likely to get implemented until we find an implementation that actually caches incomplete responses.
