No, and that is not what I meant.  We know upfront after capability
negotiation (by seeing a request to give them a thin-pack) that we
will send, in addition to the usual packfile, the prefix that
carries that information and that is the important part.  That lets
the receiver decide whether to _expect_ to see the prefix or no
prefix.  Without such, there needs some clue in the prefix part
itself if there are prefixes that carry information computed after
capability negotiation finished (i.e. after "object enumeration").

Sorry if I was unclear.
