Lets move it back one step further:

There is negative value in mandating crypto in HTTP/2.0 because it
will make HTTP/2.0 unattractive to the people who refer to themselves
as "in the multimedia business".

These people deliver about 1/3-1/2 half of all HTTP traffic on the
Internet in a fetching range of skin-tones.

Please don't try to push political agendas, like mandatory encryption,
with technical means.

It doesn't work.
