The goal of HPACK was never to produce ideal compression, just competent 
compression not vulnerable to known issues. Some people do want to attempt to 
use/create a far more efficient codec here, but it's now accepted to be outside of 
the initial scope. What could be very well received is an HTTP/2 extension to 
allow negotiation of alternate header compression methods. This would allow 
actual experimentation in an effort to find the most ideal route(s).
