I keep hearing this argument over and over. Is the goal just to finish, no matter what?

I can't find that in the charter.

At the end of the day it was just a suggestion. I recall reading emails from several implementors which said they won't be implementing PRIORITY any time soon. It also takes up a big chunk of the spec and it's non-obvious if it's optional or not.  I was also surprised to read Patrick's claim that h2 won't work without PRIORITY because that claim isn't stated anywhere in the spec.
