    Yes, from the RFC:

       This requirement prevents an interoperability failure when the
       message is being received by an HTTP/1.1 (or later) proxy and
       forwarded to an HTTP/1.0 recipient. It avoids a situation where
       compliance with the protocol would have necessitated a possibly
       infinite buffer on the proxy.

    That said, it sounds like the only safe way to get asynchronous
    updates with ippget is to use a multi-part content type, with each
    event notification (or compound notification) in its own
    application/ipp message part.
