If the TCP connection is closed with a reset, there's no guarantee how many bytes the intermediary has read from the kernel buffer before the reset is received, so I don't think the behavior is likely to be that different.

If there's an error at the HTTP layer, then I think there would commonly be a change in what the client sees, but that seems like a buggy backend, so I'm not sure it's worth attempting to deal with more gracefully?
