We're wandering out into the weeds here Mark, lets get back to my

HTTP/2.0 is not enough of an improvement to warrant going on the
standards track, and that it should be dropped for that reason,
rather than make a lot of people waste a lot of time and expose the
net to more new complex software with new bugs.

If and when we are going to attempt again, we should start out
trying to find out what problems should be addressed and which
shouldn't, but that is an entirely different disussion, and I'll
be happy to take that discussion at that time, with or without
HTTP/2.0 in the picture.

But right now, my argument is that HTTP/2.0 is not good enough
that we should push it on the net at large.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
