1. That's an article on an unrelated site, not a product from the IETF. Basing 
HTTP/2 spec commentary on that seems like the wrong approach. Read the spec 
and base your critiques on that please.

2. On this list we have seen spokespeople from two browsers state this intent 
of implementing TLS-only. I personally am interested to learn which that third 
browser is since I wasn't aware of anyone publicly speaking for Safari's 
stance on this?
