If only that were true.  It's true if the idea of "support" is broad enough.

If we really care about achieving interoperability, what we will do is
specify what options for upgrade we expect to work every time.  Maybe
throw in a few "MUST"s here and there.

The same goes for 2817 with Upgrade: TLS + HTTP/2.0.  We'd have to say
"do that" with some degree of specificity lest we risk things
breaking.

(I'm not going to make any assessments about what is or is not the
"Right Thing To Do", but I don't think that your assertion fits in
light of the discussion thus far.)
