Well you were told last year that http2 needed a good intermediary story
or intermediary people would get things into their own hands. And that
they could make your life miserable just as you could make theirs
miserable. And that the "bad" intermediary people where financed by "good"
intermediary users because "good" intermediaries have been made to suck so
much people had no choice but to junk "good" intermediaries in favour of
"bad" working ones.

I don't see how your solution/proposal to make intermediaries suck even
more by guerilla fighting all of them indiscriminately in http2
implementations is not going to result in more of the same.

Make standard malware-scanning youtube-blocking-at-work intermediary work
and most of the market for MITM proxies that plan to do deep inspection
will evaporate.
