SPIKE: Figure out Asset bundling strategy when HTTP/2 rolls out

Description

Considerations:

1. Bundling is an anti-pattern in HTTP/2, since requests are multiplexed through the same connection.
2. Older browsers don't support it, and will still benefit from bundling.
3. Is a hybrid effort worth the complexity?

Reference from Feb 2016: https://blog.cloudflare.com/cloudflares-impact-on-the-http-2-universe/

According to the link above, as of 2/16, ~53% of CloudFlare's traffic is HTTP/2 and 30% SPDY/3.1, which still leaves ~17% on HTTP/1.x

Acceptance Criteria:

  • Document the recommendation for how we handle the future with regard to bundling assets for edx-platform
