Just so folks know -- as a member of the W3C Web Performance WG, I've made a proposal to identify the protocol in use with the NavigationTiming and ResourceTiming specs using the ALPN protocol identifier; see:

Note the language about non-UTF-8 identifiers.

You can find out more about those specs here:
