To be clear, the proposal is:

1) Remove the reference set from HPACK (use "Linear-H")
2) Increase the frame size to 16-bits
3) Allow interleaving of HEADERS frames
4) Remove the "\0" separator hack.

Coupling this with my earlier proposal to add a "SYN_STREAM" header
would also allow us to:

5) Remove CONTINUATION frames entirely
6) Move END_* flags to the last HEADERS frame
7) Flow control HEADERS frames
