There is another good reason to remove the implicit c-e,

AFAICT, all of the browser vendors have refused to do HTTP/2.0 outside
of tls.  As such they will avoid the implicit c-e's declared raison d'
etre anyway.

Any intermediary which can MitM the tls will fubar things no matter what
an rfc specifies.
