Fair enough. 

The Web server can still deploy HTTP/1 over http:// URIs, and browsers (commercial or not) should be supporting that for a long, long time.

There’s some notion that browsers might support HTTP/2 for http:// URIs when it’s *not* the “general/open” Internet; it sounds like your use case might fall into this bucket.
