Aye, we left this out of the network-friendly draft -00 due to being 
undecided and push discussions being up in the air.

But after reading the other proposals (WebSockets RFC and Montenegro 
draft specifically) I have come up with a nice way within the 
network-friendly framing syntax to perform user sessions and server-push 
*without* baking either of those features into the transport frame 
syntax directly. This meets the gateway to HTTP/1 requirements fror 
immediate implementation rollouts and allows those features to be easily 
added as extensions once we have more migration away from HTTP/1.
  In a similar way to how we have the messaging design and layout in the 
current HTTPbis drafts, with Ranges, Auth and Caching as separate 
followup drafts/sections.
