This formula cannot work with SPDY because of the multiplexing (unless it's 
not implemented?).

Well, there are HEADERS frames and the pairs sent with SYN_REPLY header, 
which are kind of like the traditional HTTP header, but if we're interested 
only in the entity body size then it doesn't really matter.
