Compact Header Encoding


I've submitted the below draft. Like the Binary Optimized Header Encoding draft (from which I have borrowed heavily), this is not meant to be published, but as an alternative to the proposed header encoding. I believe that a binary encoding can be more compact and have better security properties than compressing text labels.
