What do you mean by "protocol"?  QUIC is the protocol.  Do you mean the
protocol on top of QUIC?  That's defined by the application using the QUIC
streams, not by the W3C or IETF.   The app can do whatever it wants.

We provide access to the QUIC protocol from the API.  Everything on top of
that is up to the application.  So there is no protocol to define that the
browser need know about.
