The manifest file was in response to Andrea's point about packaged app 
(where he pointed that network requests aren't the only use case), so 
network round trips don't apply.

If we're back on the network use case, server push has the same benefits 
(resource bundling and in-memory availability)... and saves a network 
round-trip since the resources come along!

I highly recommend reading 
(which is the best resource I've found on server push so far).
If you prefer video form: 
(start at 9'00'' for HTTP 2.0 and 11'00'' for server push)
