Given what you've said here and in the other mail (plus of course my own
previously stated concerns) I'm inclined to suggest a 16KB max (14 bits)
without introducing any kind of max frame size configurable. My point is to
drive it as small as we can without creating excessive overhead and you've
put a stake in the ground that 16KB is that level. That's still 4x as
aggressive as the current draft.
