Just for the record, as an implementer I want neither to just get it out
the door, nor to do another round of R&D.

I do not believe that the flaws in the protocol can be resolved by simply
iterating the process that we are in.    If there was interest in reviewing
the charter, collecting more public data to work against  and taking a step
back to truly reviewing what has been produced.... then I'd be all for that
regardless of the time it would take or the pie on our faces.

Failing that, I'm inclined to not change too much in the current draft -
but if good data is presented to indicate the value of minor changes (eg
switching dynamic/static table, adding values to static table entries,
huffman recoding etc etc.) then I'm happy to follow the data.... at least
for one more round.
