You're welcome to count any and all secondary effects of HTTP/2.0
to its advantage, provided you can show they exist, or even better
if you can actually measure them.

It would be pretty trivial to set up two Soekris boxes with a
WLAN connection and measure the total power consumption running
the same HTTP workload through HTTP/1.1 or HTTP/2.0.

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