Is that an argument for making HTTP/2 an experimental standard? (I'm not
whipping a dead horse, but genuinely questioning the meaning of
"experimental" vs "proposed" standards.)

Is it well and truly time for us, as well, to start working on the
apocryphal "how to use HTTP/2" document that's been mentioned from time to
time over the years? I'd start, but I don't know where to begin (since I'm
partly the target audience, wanting to know why I need to use TLS to work
with Chrome and Firefox, etc.).
