Hi there,

I came across this one today:


In section 8 the following is said

"[..] Authors are also cautioned that HTTP chunking can have
unexpected negative effects on the reliability of this protocol. Where
possible, chunking should be disabled for serving event streams unless
the rate of messages is high enough for this not to matter. [..]"

Is there any evidence for this? I'm curios to get some insight ;)
