I think you're going to see significant pushback from the community if you gate adoption of backwards-compatible protocols on things like this.

Typically, the protocol version in use is determined by operations folks, not the Web developer, and is often part of configuration of a third party (e.g., web hoster, CDN) that might not be under their full control. Making features unavailable based upon the underlying protocol is likely to cause a fair amount of chaos for them.
