I don't really know how to clarify this. I've used the same wording for:
# HTTP 200 OK responses that have a Content-Type other than
# text/event-stream (or some other supported type), and HTTP responses
# whose Access-Control headers indicate that the resource are not to be
# used, must be ignored.
# Any other HTTP response code not listed here or network error (e.g. DNS
# errors) must be ignored.
In both cases, the user agent is simply to do nothing special, no
automatic reconnection, no black listing, no nothing.
Can you suggest how to clarify this so that it makes sense to you?
