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:
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?
