Default Bug? Do we need a header for a SAM?

I'm using the htslib C library for parsing my SAM files (also used by the samtools project). The library fails if there is no header in a SAM file. However, header is optional as specified in the official documentation.

Is this a bug or is this an expected behaviour? If this is a bug, I'll push an update to the project.
