I would agree with this view. In fact, many of the arguments I have seen are explicitly not for personal gain but due to practical, legal, or other considerations that are not tied to personal gain in any way.

Thanks,

Henrik

Sorry Mike, but this totally black/white view doesn't work.

As I said earlier, there are users who are not legally allowed to have end-to-end privacy, prison-inmates, children, employees etc.

You may disagree with these policies and/or their underlying rationales, but if you make HTTP/2.0 incompatible with them, you will just slow HTTP/2.0 deployment.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
