When we last met on this topic, we discussed the removal of Upgrade and PRIORITY from HTTP/2.

The general sense was removal of Upgrade was easy.  People seemed generally OK with taking PRIORITY out in a compatible way (with a more complete excision reserved in case we found reasons to use a new ALPN identifier).

In both cases, the sense was that people wanted to see specific text and have time to review the changes.  Pull requests have been available for a while, though they weren't advertised here:

Upgrade: https://github.com/httpwg/http2-spec/pull/820
PRIORITY: https://github.com/httpwg/http2-spec/pull/795

Please review these and comment if you think that this is the wrong direction to take.  The usual quibbles and suggestions are also most welcome (preferably as comments on the changes directly).  It would be good to have a revision of the spec with some of these more fundamental changes ahead of our next interim.
