As I seem to be saying over and over...

We can wish for plaintext http2 over the internet on port 80 as much as we
want, but it won't happen since it is not reliable, and the nature of that
unreliability is not predictable.

Few websites will be willing to turn on http2 if it means losing 10-20% of
their user base. And that really is what we are talking about.
