Looking at the annotated headers for a single domain, on each request there are:

16 unique header names annotating authentication information
5 unique header names annotating rate-limiting information

Of those headers, all but 1 will take 2 bytes to encode, increasing
the size needed to reference just these names alone from 21 bytes /
request to 41 bytes / request.
