The proposed plan (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/ietf-http-wg/2013JanMar/0577.html) for TLS next protocol negotiation in the HTTP/2.0 implementation draft is to "use NPN (until TLSWG gives us something to replace it with) for TLS connections".

Based on Eric Rescorla's recent message on the TLS mailing list - Confirming Consensus: Negotiating upper layer protocols - (http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/tls/current/msg09176.html)  which states:

	Depending on list discussion and what other proposals appear, we may attempt to select a proposal in Orlando.

I'd like to slightly amend the plan to indicate that the initial HTTP/2.0 implementation draft will use the negotiation proposal selected in Orlando by the TLS WG. If none is selected, then we will use NPN (until TLSWG gives us something to replace it with) for TLS connections.
