Section 2.3.3: "Indices between 1 and the length of the static table..."
The use of 1-based indexing here seems likely to lead to

Section 3:
Currently, you never say explicitly that a header block is the
concatenation of encoded header fields, where each field is encoded
according to Section 6.  This would be a good spot to do that.

Section 5.1: "... always finishes at the end of an octet"
It was not immediately clear to me that the "?" bits indicated that an
integer need not *begin* at an octet boundary.  It would be helpful to
note that here.
