There definitely was a reason we avoided making this a strict requirement, and I think this played into it, but this is the benefit of having RPT delivered in the same frame that delivers a new one. 

Perhaps modify the text to indicate that the error is if the limit is exceeded after retiring any in RPT?

Or even some non-normative text along the lines of “If RPT retires all outstanding CIDS, immediately start sending new packets with the new CID and make sure you only check the limit after retiring any indicated in RPT”? 

On one hand, it’s kind of an annoying thing to keep track of. But on the other, making it a hard requirement does decently simplify a lot of other scenarios. 

That said, we should probably go dig up the other reasons we avoided this the first time around.
