Some further observations:

0) It reminds me a bit of ARINC 661 wire format :)
1) this seems like it could work with most frames that carry a fixed-size fields and/Or varint payload because the delta between H3 frame length and payload field sizes is the size of postfix fields. However, how is it expected to work with DATA frames? Does HEADERS have a similar problem?

2) why is experimentation with frame types difficult for this use case? 

3) I think I might have hit a similar problem when trying to design the HELIUM Http/2 frames:
