So it seems like this would be fundamentally different to what I'm
proposing, unless I've misunderstood you. Your proposal is basically
entirely isomorphic to the Reverse HTTP draft, allowing the client and
server to swap over. That still leaves us in the situation where a
server that wants to become a client (to deliver a message) is out of
luck. What it doesn't allow is for both endpoints to be initiating
streams by sending requests simultaneously. Is that understanding
