One bit that's not clear in the current draft...

When the server asks the client to persist a setting, is the client
required to return that setting in EVERY subsequent SETTINGS frame it
sends to the server until the setting is cleared or is it only
required to send the persisted settings once when a new session is
established (i.e. in the client session header?)
