My recollection (and that of the meeting minutes
that we killed implicit gzip because there are gnarly HTTP/1 spec
conformance issues, and a similar outcome can be achieved if first-mover
HTTP/2 deployments refuse HTTP/2 requests with a-e: identity. I don't
recall it being substantiated as a "serious problem" in that conversation.
