Hi Karl, Thanks for weighing in. The issue I was intending to raise was not really parsing XML or JSON or anything like that. It was using chunked delivery of an HTTP response as it is intended to be used -- to allow a client to consume the chunks as

Thanks for the suggestion. I looked at the Streams specification, and it seems pretty immature and underspecified. I’m not sure it is usable by someone who doesn’t already know how it is supposed to work before reading the specification. How many of the major web browsers are supporting it?
