I guess we're going to have this discussion in two places, but I'm not sure the non-RPT case is a valid threat model.

I am a little concerned with your formulation that the endpoint could make bad choices about which RCIDs it decides to stick with. For example, we might never increase RPT and for some reason have a low sequence number that sticks around and is still being used. The server really better actually send the RCID.

I'm happy to haggle about the exact threshold, but my formulation frees the endpoint of all the state only when the client is doing something legal but silly.
