There's lots of things that could theoretically be done. They all add
complexity. Any form of feature advertisement or negotiation would also
need to extend to HTTP/3 for parity. Few clients are going to wait to see
what the server claims to support (and support is a very weird definition
here, because servers can just ignore all client signals even if they are
understood). What we have in the document now has gained IETF consensus and
is due to be imminently published by the RFC Editor. It does not exclude
new additional work being done as a follow up activity, if we discover some
new information and agree to spend effort to solve a problem.

Cheers,
Lucas
