Re: JSON headers - No: CBOR headers

FWIW, my dislike of CBOR is strong, but I've been warming to this
notion. But I would suggest that we NOT base{64,85} anything.  HTTP/2
carries octets very nicely, the only catch being 0x00, which we can
finagle around.

Here you have identified the core challenge, and the biggest weakness of CBOR.

Apologies for the mangled quoting, but I think that it's a very
important point to make.
