If HTTP/2 is inappropriate for a case where HTTP/1.1, that's a problem 
we need to solve. This WG is chartered to define a new protocol version 
that can *replace* HTTP/1.1.

So I'd really like to see something more concrete than "it's too 
complex". After all, correctly parsing text messages is complex as well, 
and that part is gone in HTTP/2.
