That is exactly the objection people made to HTTP in the first place.

That is the objection to QUIC - why not stay with TCP?

QUIC is highly optimized to one use case. It is large, it is very complex.
At this point, I have not seen anyone show how to layer Web Services over
HTTP over QUIC. I do not expect *an* answer to that question, I expect
dozens of them only some of which are interoperable.

The assertion infrastructure adopted in SAML was originally designed as
part of TAXI which was a design commission I was given to re-invent PKIX in

I am not alone in looking at alternatives to QUIC going forward. If you
want to understand the design choices in QUIC going forward the best way is
to design your own.
