It was not so much backwards compatibility as enforced forward
compatibility. The WG was chartered to only support HTTP/1 semantics over a
new wire protocol that was aimed at solving a moderately narrow (and poorly
defined) set of protocol abuses and performance issues.

For better or worse, fixing or enhancing the semantics of the protocol was
out of scope.
