I proposed a header instead of a protocol btw

Sounds good but I suspect it will meet the same fate as XHTML 2: designed to be clean and perfect but in reality it would take to much effort to implement and maintain.

From your professional experience you can probably tell people would rather have slightly insecure site that works and gives profits rather than broken one because SOTA started including some new feature you didn't know...

People would rather enable these individual headers one by one and see their effect. In h2 headers are compressed so it's not a big deal (besides looking ugly).

if you sign for 2 versions, changes in 3 would not brake you. and the point is MANY things right now could be safe to turn on for 99.99%, e.g. XFO. So, not much effort
