I think I disagree, as this is pretty specific already. "force" has zero
semantic meaning/association. But in this case: yes, the proxy is busted
from our view. We have to degrade to work with it.

If you really want to push, then "proxy-hates-chunks" could work well.

Our goal is to get those proxies to handle chunked requests. Politically
correct terminology is not very goal-oriented. Throw in some bitchiness, I
say.
