Binary protocol "total body length"

I'm working on an erlang binary protocol client and came across an
inconsistency between the docs and the implementation. On
binary-protocol-plan-v2.txt:214 it describes "Total body length" as
"Length in bytes of extra + key + value". This seems to work correctly for
the requests I'm making. However, in reading responses back from the
server it seems to be incorrect.
I'm issuing a simple set and getting a response with "Extras length" of 16
and "Total body length" of 0:
Read binary protocol data: 80010005 0c000000 00000016 00000000
Command: 1, opaque=00000000, keylen=5, total_len=22
Value len is 1
Writing bin response: 81010000 10000000 00000000 00000000
Clearly if "total body length" is supposed to be equal to extras_length +
key_length + value_length, then this shouldn't be possible.
Is this an implementation bug or should the doc be fixed to match?
