+1   on this note.

Given HTTP/1.1 or RFC6455 won't go away, a direct tunneling approach
actually simplifies the Web (considering all the frameworks/proxies out
there) v.s. defining a more lightweight wire format for Websockets over
http/2.

With the introduction of "extended connect method", the title could have
read s/websockets/TCP protocols/ ... ?

Also, for section 4, could rationales on not defining a new method be
summarized?

Thanks.
