I don't have experience in HPACK implementation yet, but I feel that
it could simplify the sender's job. Also, my past experience working
on our proposal 2 years ago involved a very similar "common" header
set which was hard to manage for the sender and would need to be
reset in many cases and not provide that much a gain. I have the
non-scientific feeling that it will be the same here.

So that's a very small +1 from me if that counts.
