I just realized that a header field might be problematic in that
server push is a hop-by-hop mechanism and header fields would pass

The problem with anything that isn't coupled to the request is that it
becomes quite imprecise.  Any request that the client makes either
counts toward a global limit, or adds an opportunity for the server to
push another tranche of messages.
