I'm struggling to think of a use-case for an app that needs a standard API
to know the exact connect method used to establish h2. If such a
use-case does exist, then how is it going to handle the many deployment
scenarios where the connection establishment method used by the client is
hidden from the container?

So it is mostly not worth knowing, and when it is worth knowing it will be
so deployment specific that a standard API will be of little help.
