For the http2-compatibility-api.js example, one would need allowHTTP1: true as one of the options passed in to the server. Otherwise it just mimics the http API but doesn't actually accept h1 connections. See https://nodejs.org/dist/latest-v8.x/docs/api/http2.html#http2_http2_createsecureserver_options_onrequesthandler
