With H3 we need to be slightly careful, IMO requests will be handled in the
order of (received  + QPACK dependencies resolved). The removal of
exclusive is a logical concession.  Current priority language allows for
PRIORITY to be sent before the HEADERS on a request stream. This alleviates
some client concerns but not all.

The number of placeholders is a QUIC varint. The number of requests in a
connection is limited by stream ID ( varint modulo 4). It might be possible
to implement a Dmitri's tree design bit whether is logical is a different
