Comment (by Ov3rfly):

 > Due to consistency the file index.html should not generate any output =
 be empty.

 Serious software development needs
 consistency]. Same rules should apply everywhere.

 This ticket asks to follow a simple rule: No output from files which
 protect open directory listings.

 With more consistency in everybody's mind, there would be a lot less
 tickets necessary, e.g. about bypassing existing filesystem api in #44204,
 and many more...

 What a bug reporter personally needs or does not need is of no interest
