But I think that it'd be great for the protocol to eliminate deficiencies for which application developers have to work around (e.g. domain sharding). There are so many web performance guidelines that developers need to keep in mind...the less that they have to do to work around protocol deficiencies, the better.

Agreed on all points. The situation that we should avoid, I think, are protocol-level gains that *require* lots of tweaking / expertise on the server side. It's fine to accommodate them, of course, as long as they don't hurt the common case.
