Fw: New Version Notification for draft-bishop-http2-extension-frames-01.txt

When we decided in Zurich to foreclose the option to extend HTTP/2, we thought that we were close to done with the basic protocol.  And it's true -- the fundamentals of HTTP/2 haven't changed all that much since then.  But various cases keep coming up where certain parties need to add one more feature.  While these aren't core to the HTTP/2 protocol, they're also not worth versioning the protocol for later, and so we've added them to the spec for experimentation as optional components.

This draft proposes that many of these would be perfectly valid use-cases for extensions, and that we might make progress more quickly if we add a simple extension model.  I believe that the time we take in getting the extension model right will be more than offset by the ability to unblock the protocol and still handle new situations as they arise, even though we're late in the process.

I want to emphasize that the goal of the extension model is simplicity in the core protocol, and I'd welcome feedback on how to simplify it further.
