I have never heard of the term "chunk extension" before in a HTTP context.
Are you sure that this is the right term for what you are trying to find, or achieve ?

Maybe that is why you are not finding any information ?

Maybe you talking about a POST in "multipart/form-data" format ?
(and a response in a similar multi-part kind of format, although that would cause problems

with most browsers)
