interior wall framing question


Framing my addition is progressing nicely. Exterior walls are framed and just about sheathed. I've got a couple of questions, tho.

The room is 6' x12' interior dimensions.
I have a 24" wall seperating the shower stall and a 20" wide x 24" deep closet. The wall will hold the plumbing for the shower head. The little closet will hold towels and allow access to service the pipes in the future.

I realized today that I hadn't planned a way to anchor the top of the little wall. I'd rather not do a conventional header, because I don't want to loose 3" of width in the closet opening to the jack studs.

Can I anchor the top of the 24" wall to blocking between the ceiling joists, and let the opening go all the way to the ceiling?

Thanks!

Not sure about codes and such, but that's what I would do.
If it's interior non-load bearing, I just do as I please.

Don't understand why a header in the side shower wall.... Remember to offset the stud for the shower centered fixture supply pipe...May need the jack studs width for nailing the closet door jamb trim or casing.
