I'm not convinced this feature is needed at all. It looks more
like a Google-specific experiment, and this is not something I
would like to see in nginx code.
If at all implemented, I would rather prefer adding trailers if a
transfer encoding used allows this, and discrading them otherwise.
This is something that anyway will happen if a protocol used does
not allow trailers at all (e.g., HTTP/1.0).
