Sorry, even that’s not right, as Section 3.3 states:

I’d say that while RFC 7540 doesn’t *explicitly* have any normative language that says you can’t do this, it has statements that “h2c” is only for cleartext, that HTTP/2 over TLS uses “h2”, and that you can’t put “h2” in an upgrade header (only the last is normative). To me, that seems to add up to “no Upgrade header in TLS”.
