Because sequences of header continuations are required to be
contiguous without any interleaving or multiplexing or whatnot... it
really does not make sense to limit CONTINUATION frames carrying HTTP
headers to 16383 octets, as that needlessly just increases the
encoding overhead for continuations. If the END_HEADERS flag is not
set, we ought to allow frame sizes up to the maximum allowed (65,535)
to eliminate this additional overhead.
