+In HTTP/1.x, CONNECT is used to convert an entire HTTP connection into a tunnel
+to a remote host. In HTTP/2 and HTTP/3, the CONNECT method is used to establish
+a tunnel over a single stream.
+A CONNECT request MUST be constructed as follows:
+- The ":method" pseudo-header field is set to "CONNECT"
+- The ":scheme" and ":path" pseudo-header fields are omitted
+- The ":authority" pseudo-header field contains the host and port to connect to
+  (equivalent to the authority-form of the request-target of CONNECT requests
+  (see Section 5.3 of [RFC7230]))
+A CONNECT request that does not conform to these restrictions is malformed (see
+{{malformed}}).  The request stream MUST NOT be closed at the end of the

I think it's useful as an exception to the more general requirement that the stream get closed at the end of the request.  But yes, we can reword it to something like "MAY not be closed."  (I would say "need not be closed," except that an exception to a MUST elsewhere feels like it needs its own normative language.)
