I thought the aim of keeping http1 semantics was to allow http2-to-http1
bridges? If that's the case we only need good proxy support in http2, the
proxy will terminate the http2 link and translate to http1 for http1 web
sites

Trying to fix http1 for proxies at this stage seems way too late (unless
http2 goes nowhere)
