HTTP/2.0 issue: magic method registration

Amos Jeffries-2
When processed by an HTTP/1 server the HTTP/2 magic string intentionally
appears to be a valid request-line with method "PRI".

I am thinking this method needs a registration in the registry created
by HTTPbis 1.1 documents. That will allow preventing its use in any
situations other than HTTP/2.0 setup and help point out to implementers
that they may need to handle it differently to other extension methods
(silent pass-thru or reject but no fancy "fixing missing headers").
