binary protocol "get" extra data

The binary protocol doc says:

4.1.  Get, Get Quietly

       MUST have extras.
       MUST have key.
       MUST NOT have value.

However, t/binary.t doesn't send any extra data with get. In fact, I've 
found that sending binary data causes the server to get "out of sync" with 
the client and process no more requests for the rest of the connection. 
Additionally, it returns a not_found error.

Is this a doc bug or an impl bug?
