So how would the negotiation of the minor version be done?
I dont see how that is done in HTTP/2.0 (except when upgrading from 1.1).

Maybe it is worth adding a section that explains the protocol evolution model of HTTP/2.0.
(My benchmark case here would be plugging in a different compression scheme for 2.1.)

(If the result of such a discussion is that ALPN is a good way to indicate HTTP/2.1 capability early and upfront, we should plan now for the tokens that the HTTP/2.xes get.)
