Do you actually read links you provided? The same document you
are citing states:

% <http version>
% identifies the HyperText Transfer Protocol version being used by
% the server. For the version described by this document version it
% is "HTTP/1.0" (without the quotes).

And obviously it's HTTP/1.0 specs, not HTTP/0.9.

Normative syntax for HTTP/0.9 (as well as one for HTTP/1.0) may be
found in RFC 1945, see here:

http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1945

And it states that HTTP/0.9 response is just entity body.

Well, I suggest re-reading RFC 2616 and RFC 1945.
