[Council] VOTE: JEP-0138 (Stream Compression)

First, I like the simplicity of this JEP. It looks straightforward to 
negotiate the use ZLIB-based stream compression, and therefore should be 
fairly easy to implement.

However, my vote is -1, for the following reasons:

1) There is no discussion on setup of compression options/details, as 
had been discussed on standards-jig. Even if there are no meaningful 
options to ZLIB, where and how should such things be negotfor other 
compression methods? There needs to be at least some guidance on that 
subject in this JEP.

2) There are no "Mandatory to Implement" requirements, and I think this 
is bad (but I could be convinced otherwise). It would be in everyone's 
interest to set a baseline, such as ZLIB. Note that I'm not saying 
"mandatory to deploy", just "mandatory to implement".
