Nothing very objective I'm afraid.

You can see the kind of results we see with SPDY in our 2012 javaone
presentation:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ai_rrhM8gA

Don't  get me wrong, we certainly have application scenarios where our
throughput bottle neck is the size of HTTP headers.  Reducing HTTP header
size should be a priority of HTTP/2.  But I don't think we need to
sacrifice good protocol basics to achieve a world record in compression
efficiency.
