Well, which way is it Roberto ?

Care to clarify ?

I want a sensible and ethical engineering process, one that doesn't
dive headlong into serialization of HTTP headers until we have
established what problems HTTP/2.0 should solve.

Sneaking things like server-push through the backdoor is simply not
acceptable, without structured decision to give up on HTTP's strict
request-response model.

It may be that we want to loose the strict R-R model, it may be
that we do not.

But making the HTTP/2.0 process a matter of "who already has a ready
ID" is not the way to decide a question like that.

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