The corollary of Ian's point is: extracting something like push allows for
iteration of HTTP features without affecting the core HTTP/3 syntax.
Innovation without having to write quic-transport-bis, ter etc. which may
require more coordination effort that iterating using extensions.

That of course would assume that H3 is flexible enough or has has enough
extension points.
