Yep. Or you can disable all HTTP/2 too.
Cases I mention can’t be detected application-side or with very difficulty 
server-side. Simpler/more secure to disable all the HT2 stack.

But HTTP/2 is good for speed and the difference is very noticable.
Too bad the overall security will be such there is no way to use it on a post-
snowden era and/or with critical content…
