On a side note, d4, h4, and f3 is the best pawn structure to play in pawn chess (Chess with only kings and pawns)
All else being equal then for a defender fur shur
Dvoretsky says that h4/h5 is good for the inferior side because if g4/g5 then hxg4/g5 exchanging down pawns, and each pawn exchange improves drawing chances of the inferior/"defending" side.
The superior side on the other hand should strive to win pawns and avoid exchanges when necessary.
I think that the main issue with this line is that it neglects development of the king, which should be well advanced to support the pawns.
The greatest player that "might" have lived.
