The US Army's XM1063 projectile is designed to be 'non-lethal' - but is it peaceful or hovering on the brink of illegality?

I am quite fine with this "stink bomb". That is if there are no permanent side effects on living beings. If that is true, then this weapon's non-lethality feature keeps from being classed as a deadly chemical weapon banned after WW1.
Maybe they should remove the nanoparticles if there are permanent side effects. Using this as an area denial against troops can still be effective on the battlefield.
