Iím in favor.

Clients wishing to send PRIORITY should know whether the server is just going to ignore it. Itís a good signal to use another prioritization strategy, for example by reducing concurrency (start streams later).

Also, itís had the most churn of any part of the spec and practical experience will take more time. Extension status will enable faster evolution.
