I'm not if this was an editorial PR. The previous text talked about a situation where a server was too busy to accept a new connection. The new text generalizes this to a connection refusal for any reason. That's a design change.

I also strongly disagree that this issue should close #3690. There's still on ongoing discussion if an additional error code should be introduced. I can't see how this is not a design issue.
