Where is the "Disapprove" button? :)

I previously argued for relaxation of a connection error related to reducing Push ID limits. The argument against relaxation was that the client (in this case) has all required information to prevent such an occurence. 

This proposal seems advantagous but I'd say it makes the protocol too meek. Especially control frames on request streams. For example, a server that can wants to operate this way will accept bogus frames on a client's requests streams, so it will probably accept a request and then abort the stream causing the client to be starved (and eventually timeout?). Attack of the zombie H3 connections.
