There are no vast majority of IPP server implementations (yet). I think the
only worry is if someone plans to deploy IPP behind a generic web server
that doesn't support chunking. However, Apache and most other of the more
popular HTTP/1.1 servers will support this. It should definitely be a
bullet item (checkoff item) at the upcoming bake-off, however.
