I suppose you could add other methods. It does say this in the JEP, which I
missed, presumably by adding other <method> stanzas:
Now my only real issue is that if the future compression methods used
require parameters, or further negotiation, then the current JEP isn't
flexible enough to handle them. However I can't think of any that do - so
that may not be an issue.
