@ianswett yeah, this PR is trying to make it clear, because I also find it non-obvious (and buried in the security considerations section of the TLS draft).

While this PR makes it crystal clear what is supposed to happen, I can easily see a developer thinking they're smarter than the spec and discarding after header protection. I wouldn't mind some explanatory text, but one thing at a time.
