Nah, this allows us flexibility in optimizing the data sent to our
client.  If we can send chunked-encoding, I believe that is a better
than using C-L.  I believe that the RFC allows us to do these sorts
of optimizations.  

IIRC, the PR wasn't saying there was a problem with our approach - it
was just that the admin didn't understand that was legal.  -- justin
