Yes; because the entire C-L is known and the overhead for C-L plus
fragment header/trailer is longer than a simple C-L header.

The original question was, "How do I force chunking".  The answer
is, you don't and can't expect to.  Chunking is a hop-by-hop
behavior over which you have no control by either endpoint of the
intermediate servers' elections.
