I understand but this seems a deviation (I don't say a violation since the RFC 
says SHOULD and not MUST) from the RFC on HTTP (2616):

9.4 HEAD

   The HEAD method is identical to GET except that the server MUST NOT
   return a message-body in the response. The metainformation contained
   in the HTTP headers in response to a HEAD request SHOULD be identical
   to the information sent in response to a GET request.

It is certainly a big problem for debugging or for robots which assume they 
can test with HEAD.
