I don't mind changing my (or others) code to adapt to changes in the protocol 
spec. I've been on this journey from the start and I'm one of those who have 
adapted code many times already and I have the feeling I will do more of that. 
I'm not afraid of changing code when it's necessary.

I want a protocol to implement so I want the HTTP/2 spec to settle down, and 
therefore I object aginst nit-picking details that in my mind don't have any 
particular impact in the protocol's ability to succeeed and that aren't very 
important to make the protocol easier to implement. I just don't consider that 
minor polish worth the extra time, effort and interop work that will follow.

But if there's any other actual - REAL - change that will go in that changes 
the format anyway, then I won't mind seeing these framing changes as well as 
then we've already broken the seal anyway and can just as well do that change
