Embedding base64 images isn't really more efficient on HTTP/2 servers. Base64 adds overhead, and multiplexing mitigates the cost of additional network requests.

But unless you use server push, it still is an additional roundtrip.

Yes but since it's multiplexed into the same tcp stream it doesn't suffer from slow start and so the tcp window is already large so it's not as bad as it would be on http1.
