My preferred option is 4!  which is the status quo for encoding but with a
trimmed static table of approx 32 entries, mostly with values (to give
space for dynamic headers).

Almost as good is option 3 - but it needs to be considered together with a
refined static table.

I can live with 1, but I agree with Willy that it is clear we missed a
revision of the static table.

Can't live with 2 because it removes the possibility of pre-generation in
many cases.
