I accept that the WG probably has to move on and that we can't iterate on
this argument forever.

But please don't say there has been convergence.   Several implementors
have spoken here saying that they will not support continuations, so the
current draft rather than supporting arbitrary large headers has actually
enforced even worse support for them in deployed implementations.
