 using MAX_STREAMS frames ({{frame-max-streams}}). Separate limits apply to
 unidirectional and bidirectional streams.
+If a max_streams transport parameter or MAX_STREAMS frame carries a value
+greater than 2^60, which implies a maximum stream ID that cannot be expressed,

My addition was (perhaps poorly) trying to articulate the difference between expressing it in transport params/MAX_STREAMS vs. in other frames. Saying that it's not expressible isn't accurate -- it was "expressed" when we received it -- what we want to say is that it's not expressible in other frames, specifically as a varint. 

Maybe what I should have suggested is 
"cannot be expressed as a variable-length integer (see {{integer-encoding}})."
