Perhaps not useful to Google.

But I think Static+Huff will be an attractive option to minimal implementations that don't want to worry about shared state.

Furthermore, my understanding has been that the primary purpose of header compression was for clients to stuff as many requests as possible into the initial TCP window.  Header compression on replies is likely to be in the noise.
