It's only that way because you made it that way.  The common factor is
that they deal with incoming bytes.  That's not a particularly strong
argument.

"I think" doesn't really go far enough to justify what is a pretty
fundamental change to the structure of the protocol (far more so, in
my opinion than the relatively arbitrary change to frame size).

We could build all sorts of knobs, levers and dials.  The key to
success doesn't involve finding all those that can be justified and
add them, it involves finding all those that can be done without and
removing them.
