I'd like to get rid of or deprecate any getSize()/getLength() methods
* MessageBodyWriter.getSize() should be deprecated and maybe have its
language changed so that the value returned here is ignored, or at least,
future implementations should always return -1. The reason for this is that
the MBW should have full control on whether a Content-Length header is set or
not and the JAX-RS runtime should not set this.
So, is your suggestion that all MBW's set Content-Length in writeTo?
