Sorry if it was aggressive, I was trying to kill this argument once and
for all.

The incentive to adopt http/2 instead of existing systems is to play nice
with browsers and users (assuming http/2 is well designed). Existing
systems do not play nice with users and browsers. If you integrate the
fact that operators do want to play nice with users and browsers, you'll
realise your question answers itself.
