Sorry, premature send. What I was saying that I think its totally reasonable to expect that http/2 should offer similar performance as http/1.1 for proxies, balancers, and servers (not just clients). Otherwise, if itís going to cost x% more for providers to switch to http/2, they just might not do it.
