>                 Key: ODATA-297
>                 URL: http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ODATA-297
>             Project: OASIS Open Data Protocol (OData) TC
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: OData Protocol 
>    Affects Versions: V4.0_WD01
>         Environment: [Applied]
>            Reporter: Evan Ireland
>             Fix For: V4.0_WD01
> The procotol spec (2013-03-12) shows some examples in section Batch Request Body, which include Content-Length.
> But no examples or requirements are provided for the use of Content-Length elsewhere.
> We should state explicitly when Content-Length must be specified (if at all).
> Note: Content-Length is particularly valuable for clients accessing large Stream values, as it allows the client applications to provide progress meters in the UI.
> It is less useful for clients accessing entity sets, as the server may (via the use of nextLink) break up a response into multiple pages. If clients could indicate via a preference that they wish to receive an entire entity set (or delta link contents) in a single HTTP response, then Content-Length would be quite useful for entity sets and delta links.
