I encourage you to progress your HTTP/2 impl, as I certainly found that
doing so has greatly improved my understanding of the draft and the issues
associated with it.

While I think there are outstanding issues, I'm not sure that the continued
discussion of them does mean that we will go back to the drawing board, nor
that the WG thinks those issues are not adequately addressed.  The current
draft is implementable and there does appear to be considerable interest in
going forward with it to see how it goes.

ie, whilst the current draft is not how I would do it if I were god,  I
could live with most of it if it did become an RFC..... and would revel in
the "I told you so" rights I would get when we are all back here in a few
years because it failed to be widely adopted or we have to work out how to
deal with the growing usage of massive headers :)
