I have seen that kind tight-loop often enough, and I suggest to consider
any loop like that as SPDY in the manner one-step ahead.

In that sense, I can then say we can use Microsoft's post about the
Multi-Legged authentication scheme and consider SPDY as one of the options
along with Kerberos (and others).

For the political mode, later, it wraps client-server technology into
HTTP/2 that was not so wrapped in HTTP/1.x
