The ALTSVC frame is explicitly hop-by-hop already. This helps to bring
the HTTP/1 header behaviour in line with that.

A proxy will not be emitting ALTSVC frames. Nor should it be relaying
Alt-Svc headers, unless its a legacy install treating them as unknown
and relaying blindly.

I would hope for the HTTP/1 header to also be explicitly mentioned as
hop-by-hop as well with a proxy / gateway requirement to SHOULD erase
where possible on forwarding, or if received from an upstream proxy.
