@MikeBishop, since the revert was partial, the net effect of this issue was to remove the text that was forbidding DATA frames with zero length.

So now the RFC is in an inconsistent state, where zero-len DATA frames are allowed, but we don't know what they are. Are they just not an error but should be ignored ?
