Can you clarify what you mean by new protocol semantics? Does multiplexing
count as a new protocol semantic? What's your proposed scope?

I understand the desire to split out server push into a separate draft /
extension. If we don't have data to support push, then by all means we
should drop it. The main concern I have is with regards to treating push as
an optional feature / extension. As many of us have stated repeatedly on
this mailing list, many things that are optional simply become unusable in
real, public deployments.
