Does it make sense, then, to designate this as an HTTP/1.2 exploration,
as opposed to an outright HTTP/2.0 refactoring?  Somewhere during the
process, if there were a clear mandate to abandon some aspect[s] of the
HTTP/1.1 spec, then the project could recharter itself to HTTP/2.0 with
that narrow, well defined purpose in doing so.
