You're right that it's not OpenSSL-specific, but the general topic of
"how do you design protocols atop TLS" and "how do you take a TCP
protocol and put it on top of TLS" seem relevant.
Huh. Looking closely, I see that HTTP requires header-based framing
information when the request has a body - either Content-Length or
Transfer-Encoding. And here I thought I had a pretty decent
understanding of basic HTTP. Maybe I've just never hand-crafted a POST
request. I learn something new every day.
