 : See {{settings-parameters}}.
+In HTTP/QUIC, setting values are variable-length integers (6, 14, 30, or 62 bits
+long) rather than fixed-length 32-bit fields.  This will often produce a shorter
+encoding, but will produce a longer encoding for settings which use the full
+32-bit space.  Settings ported from HTTP/2 might choose to redefine the format
+of their settings to avoid using the 62-bit encoding.

In that case, how about starting the paragraph with 'Setting values are ...... rather than fixed length 32-bit fields as in HTTP/2."  Currently you mention HTTP/QUIC in the HTTP/QUIC draft, and don't reference the thing you're comparing against(HTTP/2).
