Okay gotcha. I'm still getting a feel for what is meant by these key terms.

Question: if the browser issues a normal HEADERS frame GET for an object
that subsequently arrives via a PUSH_PROMISE stream, will it use the pushed
copy if that pushed copy arrives before any data frames arrive on the
stream the browser initiated?
