I think I'm going to expand on the chunked-encoding part a bit, because
you've got some good stuff in there about when the server can and can't
supply an omitted 'Content-Length'. I think it should actually go in the
section about the server supplying omitted headers, rather than buried in a
later note. The "application note" should just mention the option of using
chunked encoding as an alternative to closing the connection when
Content-Length isn't supplied by the app.
As for checking the length of the iterable, I'm okay with that, but it
should be wrapped in a try: because it shouldn't be required that the
iterable have a __len__ method.
Finally, regarding 1.5.2, I'm fine with dropping that claim altogether, if
it saves us having to spell out the pre-2.2 iteration protocol
