Method for Upgrade

Howdy HTTP Enthusiasts,

Over in MASQUE, we're defining a way to proxy UDP that's very similar to
CONNECT but for UDP instead of TCP [1]. For HTTP/2 and HTTP/3, we've landed
on using extended CONNECT (RFC 8441), and for HTTP/1.x we've landed on
using Upgrade. However, in HTTP/1.x the client still needs to send a method
and we're wondering which one was best: WebSocket uses GET but using
CONNECT would be more consistent with what we're doing with HTTP/2 and
HTTP/3. Does anyone have thoughts or opinions on this? Please respond to
this email or on the GitHub issue [2].
