Just spit-balling, but I think that the '*' form is a better way to
deal with this, i.e.,

:method = CONNECT
:scheme https
:host example.org:443
:path *

The trick here is that the DATA frames that form the "request body"
constitute a separate channel that is reliable, in-ordered, etc...
This channel can be used to perform a TLS handshake and run any
protocol you like.
