I'm happy to explore other avenues. I'm also happy to defer the discussion
until HTTP/3.

I still believe there's a significant case that HTTP/2 doesn't address,
that HTTP/1.1 (theoretically) does: allowing compression after
entity-specific operations (such as ranges).

If T-E is not the right way, I would want to discuss other mechanisms; and
since those would likely modify HTTP semantics, not to mention requiring
lengthy debate, it should wait for HTTP/3.

Others may have a stronger opinion about the importance of T-E in HTTP/2.
