Ah, I didn't understand the context.

In that case, I don't think we should expand our charter to include
changing the semantics of HTTP.  That's a can of worms that will
derail the HTTP/2.0 effort.  It's going to be hard enough to keep the
working group productive with the limited scope we have already.
