Just in the first five seconds, listen to when Derek says "happens". So, I'm wondering if this is actually a thing, if at least some varieties of English are in the process of initial [h] > [x] or [χ].

I wouldn't be surprised if German merged [ç] with [ʃ] over the course of the next decades. Cedh also once wrote a comment on the Old Forum™ about how he thinks that /Vr$/ might turn into /Vː$/ in the future.
