Thank you for the work put into this document. It is really easy to read and it
should bring real values.

Please find below some non-blocking COMMENT points (but replies would be
appreciated even if only for my own education).

Special thanks to Tommy Pauly for the shepherd's write-up including the section
about the WG consensus.

I hope that this helps to improve the document,



I like the way that urgency and incremental are defined and used.

-- Section 4.1 --
Please bear with my lack of knowledge here, but I wonder what is the expected
client behaviour in the absence of SETTINGS_NO_RFC7540_PRIORITIES ? Should it
keep using the 2 priority signals ?

I also wonder about the asymmetry between the 2nd and 3rd paragraph, i.e., may
the client continue to send both priority signales in the 2nd paragraph ?

-- Section 4.3 --
Should the 'community' be defined in "cannot be agreed upon in the community" ?

-- Section 6 --
Does the describe used of u=7 contradict the one described earlier as "delivery
of software updates" in section 4.1 ? Perhaps add the pre-fetch use case in
section 4.1 ?

-- Section 7.1 --
Should this be "Type (i) = 0x10" in the figure 1 to match the text
"(type=0x10)" in the first paragraph ?
