Hello experts,
please review the issue including the comments that contain the resolution description.

This late change was unfortunately necessary to fix the inconsistency between spec text and Response javadoc. Also, the old spec text was neglecting the scenarios where message body readers are used on the client side to read the response entities and throwing BadRequestException would be inappropriate in such case.

Thank you,
