I think that "end offset" might be ambiguous the same way as "final offset" is; it could mean the offset of the final octet. Using terms like "size" (or "number of bytes") avoids that confusion. It should also be noted that we refer to the same thing as "amount of data that can be sent" in the definition of MAX_STREAM_DATA; so far I have tried to align the definition of RESET_STREAM to that.

@martinthomson's suggestion to use "flow control credit" as a term sounds good to me. Ideally we should RESET_STERAM.final_offset and MAX_STREAM_DATA.max_stream_data using the same term.
