OK but processing only TCP in HTTP mode is a pure waste. You don't log precisely, you can't check the request validity, you can't force to close the connection, you can't return HTTP error messages, etc...

No, because in TCP, there is no data analysis nor mangling. option httpclose only works in "mode http". Also, haproxy should complain about the option if you set it in tcp mode.
