This consists of two related commits:

- Defines the minimal set of operations which a QUIC implementation MUST expose to the application, introducing terms for them which don't rely on the specific wire formatting
- Changes HTTP/3 to use these terms instead of referring to specific QUIC frames

Note that this doesn't remove all references to QUIC frames, but the remaining references are explanatory -- they describe what will happen at the transport layer after taking a particular action, rather than being part of the normative text.  (But if you find one of these you think needs to go, please include that in this review.)

This is a design, because exposing this functionality is mandatory.  I'm not sure how you would previously have created a usable QUIC implementation without these operations, but you weren't previously required to have them all.

Fixes #2805, closes #2677.
