Yeah - sticky headers take roughly the same amount of work to implement on
the client side as SCP, and aren't nearly as big a win for http-1 class
protocols.

The real wins from this sort of thing come when you go balls out to keep
request/responses under a packet, and in many of those situations you
don't have a connection going anyway, so you need to go to cached
profiles.
