I think it is premature, because it obscures and prevents the much
needed high-level design of HTTP/2.0.

And that is exactly why I think the current approach and timeline
is a road to nowhere fast.

The fact that we just saw Google say they would get behind any
improvement, as long as it is SPDY pretty much dooms the HTTP/2.0
effort right there and then:  All that's on the table is minor
rearrangements of the deckchairs, there is no opening for
changing the course.

And with that, over and out.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
