> +### Discarding 0-RTT Keys
+Clients SHOULD discard 0-RTT keys as soon as they install 1-RTT keys, since
+they have no use after that moment.
+Clients do not send 0-RTT packets after sending a 1-RTT
+packet ({{using-early-data}}).  Therefore a server MAY discard 0-RTT keys as
+soon as it receives a 1-RTT packet.  However, due to packet reordering, a
+0-RTT packet could arrive after a 1-RTT packet.  Servers MAY temporarily retain
+0-RTT keys to allow decrypting reordered packets without requiring their
+contents to be retransmitted with 1-RTT keys.  Servers MUST discard 0-RTT keys
+within three times the Probe Timeout (PTO, see {{QUIC-RECOVERY}}) after
+receiving a 1-RTT packet.  A server MAY discard 0-RTT keys earlier if it
+determines that it has received all 0-RTT packets, which can be done by
+keeping track of packet numbers.

Good point, added that.
