Hi all,

IMHO a HTTP/2.0 can be backwards-compatible with the "semantics" of HTTP/1.1 and, at the same time, provides additional verbs, headers, etc.

A gateway 1.1 ---> 2.0 ---> 1.1 can work without problems if 1.0 in the middle do not change the semantic of the message.

At the same time is true that a 2.0 ---> 1.1 can not be possible if the 2.0 message contains any new semantic that 1.1 don't have but for this situation can we define a protocol downgrade equal to the required downgrade in a 1.1 ----> 1.0 sequence with, for example, a keep-alive header. 

May be I don't understand what is the problem.
