the http/1 share of https:// traffic is dwindling fast. Its down to about
1/3 of https for me. So if you're looking to hide in a big pool, that's a
shrinking segment.

imo its a bigger problem because any rfc that required h1 would
dis-incentivize h2 which is something the IETF should surely not want to do
for many reasons.
