If we took this proposal, we'd be cementing a new pattern:  Unidirectional streams might have a header following the type.  Push already does (and in London we rejected a proposal to make Push ID behave the way SETTINGS does instead, #2526).  I like that pattern, and alongside #2781 this would remove the concept of frame-that-can-only-be-first.  That's decidedly appealing.

However, we're close to late-stage and this isn't demonstrably *better*, just cleaner.
