I'm fine with a 64KB max possible (but subject to SETTINGS) size of
compressed HEADERS.

In fact I'd really hate it if we opened for megabyte HEADERS and had to
cope with them in the future.

This also slightly mitigaes the "HEADERS not subject to window" issue.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
