If you think that there is a bug in the HTTP spec then by all means
check out the latest drafts, and in doubt report this on the HTTPbis
WG's mailing list (pointers: <http://tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/>).
That being said: a missing feature is not the same thing as a bug or
"vagueness". My understanding is that range requests are truly optional,
and thus a server is not supposed to send a partial response unless the
client requested it.
