What is 'ChunkUploaded' envisioned to do? Is is necessary to handle failed chunk uploads here (via max_retries) or is this handled transparently in the background. Or is this just to an entry to providing UI feedback for successfully processed server side chunks and it's response ?

I guess what I'm saying is "What would be a example usage of ChunkUploaded?"

Providing UI feedback I guess would be a best example. Handler for ChunkUploaded gets HTTP status and response text if available. One could send some checksum info from server and compare it to the one calculated on client-side for example. Potentially it can become more useful in conjunction with BeforeChunkUpload (moxiecode/plupload#809), that we are going to add in 2.2.0.
