The draft mandates TLS extension ALPN for any https 2.0 connections,
but why is that necessary? Why can't we also establish an https 2.0
connection through the Upgrade mechanism, without ALPN? TLS extension
may not be available/convenient on some platforms for some time;
requiring it may discourage some potential implementers.
