He continued and posted this: “The first comment by @peter_szilagyi is that he would like to do EIP-1559 in London if it is coupled with a refund removal EIP because refunds can lead to blocks being 2x the gas limit, which 1559 can also do, which would result in a potential max increase of 4x.”
He also said that “Geth says that even proposals that slowly phase out refunds would be fine, given the performance improvements they’ve made and the gas repricings coming in Berlin.”
