Wow,  I really think the IETF needs to consider their process if simple
stupid things like this can be detected by the process and still not fixed.

I thought we had just deferred the fixing of the table until a breaking
binary change - and surely updating from h2-14 to h2-17 and then eventually
to h2 is a binary breaking change that would have allowed us to fix the

So it is a distinct possibility that we will carry these errors in this
table for decades.   Somebody should calculate the carbon emissions we are
going to be responsible for because we didn't go for the small efficiency
gains on offer with an optimised table!

I know I say this a lot, but EPIC FAIL!
