Agreed. The purpose of the reserved bits was for a future rev of the protocol to move from 24 to 31 bits, *not* for an extension of h2.

(I suppose technically an unrelated extension could steal those bits before we get to h3, unless we explicitly say they are reserved for future extensions of the length field.)
