Yup, they're nonsense.  And they would be just as nonsensical if the
server sent them ... which is precisely what happened to me to start
this thread (for a different value of "nonsense").

So what are you saying?  It sounds a lot like "RFC 2616 is broken
because servers can send nonsense in the response headers."  If so,
can you name a spec that isn't broken in that way?
