You are under no obligation to support any proposal, but please do not
denigrate the motives of those who are making them in good faith.

The proposals to remove continuations are motivated by genuine concerns
that they will harm the future of the web.   Effort has been made to listen
to all the issues that continuations were designed to address and the
proposals have been prepared to those multiple requirements in mind.

I understand it is tedious to go over this again and again, but I genuinely
believe that the apparent willingness of the WG to remove the refset from
HPACK has removed one of the key drivers for the continuation design, and
thus it is worthwhile to discuss alternatives at this point.

If the consensus comes out that the WG would prefer to keep continuations
(and I suspect Mark is about to call it that way), then fine.  But please
don't suggest that those contributing to the process are doing so for
anything but good in good faith.
