As I said before:  If we cannot demonstrate HTTP/2 on a 10GE
media and argue plausibly that it can be handled on 1Tbit/sec,
we're writing a standard for the past and not the future.

Matt Mathis has been pushing similar agenda for IP MTU for years now:


Poul-Henning Kamp       | UNIX since Zilog Zeus 3.20
phk@FreeBSD.ORG         | TCP/IP since RFC 956
FreeBSD committer       | BSD since 4.3-tahoe    
Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
