 unidirectional and bidirectional streams.
+If a max_streams transport parameter or MAX_STREAMS frame is received with a

+expressed as a variable-length integer (see {{integer-encoding}}).

If we're bike-shedding the grammar, I'd vote for `... this would allow a maximum stream ID ...`. Using "would" correlates better to the fact that this is indeed a protocol error and therefore isn't actually allowing anything.
