It's unclear to me the point that you're making. Above, Peter said "Since a
SPDY session is associated with a single TCP connection, we can assume all
GETs on that connection are being routed to the same web server." to which
you said "I think that is an unwarranted assumption."

So, just to clarify, we're on agreement that all GETs are being routed to
the same HTTP router, right? I understand that intermediary authors have
concerns about the use of compression at all and also about the type of
compression, but I think that's orthogonal to Peter's above point.
