This is the part that I care about most.  I'm glad you are slowing
working towards a coherent strategy here. :)

This draft, and more generally the direction that you and Mike are
exploring.  We've done a lot to "optimize" HTTP over time, and this
could do good things for both performance AND operational use.

(BTW, I'm very interested in having a good transition strategy here.
Expect me to give you heaps of flack over anything that requires
careful matching of two policies.  Especially if that synchronization
doesn't involve copy-paste; I expect tools in a wide array of
languages to accompany any proposal that looks like that.)
