The HTTP/3 draft relies on the reader's familiarity with the HTTP/2 spec, bouncing between normative references to HTTP/2 and specification as a delta to some prior decision for HTTP/2. While that's understandable for initial development and for a section on gatewaying to h2, I don't think it is appropriate for a standards track document that will eventually (or at least likely) obsolete HTTP/2.

I don't expect readers (outside of the WG members) to have implemented h2, even if the design is based on h2. I would like all of the necessary concepts, aside from what can be normatively referenced via http-core, to be fully defined within this spec, even if that means copy and paste from h2.

(I would label this as editorial and -http)
