Discussed in Tokyo; this is viewed as an important optimization.  There are ways to solve this by modifying the HTTP/3 framing layer, but it has challenges, notably for proxies.  This can be solved by extensions (EXTERNAL_DATA, END_OF_FRAMES).  We should do so to learn more.

However, the "optimal" solution might be a QUIC stream-of-messages feature in the future, which is already being discussed.
