As the editor of the spec that stands most to be affected by faffing
around here, I'd be strongly opposed to further delays.

...and don't take this to mean that this is the only reason I believe
we should proceed in this way.  The arguments stacked up against ALPN
are not new.  I've read the arguments presented, and agree with some
points, disagree with others, but on the whole I find them completely
unconvincing.
