Sorry this got ignored for so long.  Can you rebase it and I can merge it?  There's one minor comment inline

>  ### Limits on Dynamic Table Insertions {#blocked-insertion}
 Inserting entries into the dynamic table might not be possible if the table
 contains entries which cannot be evicted.
 A dynamic table entry cannot be evicted immediately after insertion, even if it
 has never been referenced. Once the insertion of a dynamic table entry has been
-acknowledged and there are no outstanding unacknowledged references to the
-entry, the entry becomes evictable.
+acknowledged and there are no outstanding references to the entry in
+unacknowledged header blocks, the entry becomes evictable.  Note that
+unacknowledged references on the encoder stream do not preclude the eviction of

I don't know that we need to say this, since the previous sentence explicitly says 'references to the entry in unacknowledged header blocks' and header blocks do not appear on the encoder stream.

Or maybe the sentence should just indicate that headers on the encoder stream that reference other headers do not count as a reference.
