I'm wondering though if this needs to be a separate issue given that we're talking about a different use case, and one that involves the behavior of HttpURLConnection when dealing with different response codes.  I'll also check to see if there are existing tests that make CPV checks against URIs that have non-200 response codes.

Hmmm, I was not quite correct about the HttpURLConnection behavior - it's not the 404 that's causing the issue directly, it is indeed the getContentLength when the 404 happens.  So forget a separate issue, I will deal with non-200 codes in this PR.
