With respect to Issue 2.7, the answer is proposed to be:

Add to the IIG (IPP Implementers Guide):

Clients should anticipate that the IPP server may chunk responses and should
handle them.  However, a client that is not fully conformant MAY attempt to
request an HTTP 1.1 server to not use chunking in its response to an
operation by using the following HTTP header:

	TE: identity

This mechanism should not be used by an IPP server to disable an IPP client
from chunking a request.


So I guess we need to keep it that way, ok?

Tom
