The cookie stuff needs a little more work:

This bit makes no sense for a HTTP/2 proxy, since it MAY split the
just assembled cookie header again for transmission:

	If there are multiple Cookie header fields after
	decompression, these MUST be concatenated into a single octet string
	using the two octet delimiter of 0x3B, 0x20 (the ASCII string "; ").

Is there are good reason (and is it in scope?) to MUST this for servers ?

If so, we should make it apply only to servers.

Otherwise we should delete it.

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