> Will add a new SETTINGS parameter or similar setup so endpoints can indicate which prioritization setup they are using / want to use

This seems a little controversial.  Patrick expressed a desire to limit the number of potential schemes.  One of the source of the failings in h2 was the way that it enabled proliferation of schemes.  On the converse side of this, Alan said that if implementation is consistent across servers, then allowing variation in clients is fine.  I would add that this is not consistently implemented.

Meta-point: I do want to have a scheme, I just have low expectations of our ability to succeed in the time frame we aspire to.
