Using specific stream numbers goes against the transport/app isolation principle of not depending on specific stream numbers. I believe there was a long discussion on this. What if you suddenly choose to add an optional sub-control stream as an extension or future version, e.g. for a new kind of header compression? It gets messy quickly.
