I support adoption and intend to implement this. Due to, uhm, architectural
difficulties, implementing the delay of early HTTP requests until handshake
completion has been more annoying than originally thought, and the new 4nn
status code provides a much simpler alternative. I also welcome standardisation
in the way intermediaries signal early data requests to origins.
