You need at least new HTTP2 servers. Those servers probably could do 
gzip on the transport level.

Not sure if it really needs to be end to end. If support for T-E is 
mandated in HTTP2 then proxies can just forward the compressed content 
unmodified within HTTP2 if they don't have a need to modify the content 
much the same way as they would do with C-E.
