Re: I-D Action: draft-ietf-httpbis-http2-09.txt

+1... I have many cases where we abort based on nothing but
Content-Type and other headers, without ever actually looking at the
body of the post. If we can fail fast and cancel the body, then

(of course, multiplexing sequences of non-idempotent / non-safe
methods is extremely tricky in itself, but that's a separate issue..
developers need to be aware that just because they receive a response
code, doesn't mean it's ok to fire off the next request...)
