With that said, you're not the first to make that comment, so I'm open to modify that, especially since HTTP/2 makes this consideration irrelevant.
> Uncompressed bytes on the wire add up quickly and short names are consistent with general policy of keeping those at a minimum. I don't believe this is counter to HTTP WG goals or guidance. That said, I'm not opposed to renaming them if there is a strong preference one way or another.

> Big +1 to that. This is all great feedback, thanks Maciej.
