Maybe I missed it. Where does HTTP/1.1 spec mention WINDOW_UPDATEs exactly?

The HTTP/2 spec needs to say *how* the mechanism maps to
Expect:100-continue at both gateway directions or we will end up with
implementations which forget or omit one half the mechanism. Thus
repeating the 100-continue problem all over again.
