Technically, 1RTT packets can be sent on the PTO when there is unacked Handshake data, but you're correct that if there are two MSS or more of Handshake data, the client would repeatedly retransmit that data instead of sending any 1RTT packets as written today.

I think MT's PR is heading in the right direction.

@marten-seemann do you have an alternate suggestion of how to deal with this situation?
