On the other hand the RFC also says:


  10.4.12 411 Length Required

  The server refuses to accept the request without a defined
  Content-Length. The client MAY repeat the request if it adds a valid
  Content-Length header field containing the length of the message-body in
  the request message.

I assume the server can send this error since it is in the RFC. The
client can only retry with a Content-Length request, not a chunked
request. So it appears that the only chunked support a server needs is
to be able to reply 411.
