> I think we need the freedom of promoting stream-level errors to connection errors. For example, when a server detects a suspicious activity by a client at a stream-level, it would make sense to close the connection.

I agree. This is a real thing that happens today with H2 and should be maintained.

My question would be, does  it makes sense for promotion to maintain the the error code fidelity? I.e. if you are closing connection on a miss-behaving peer, is there benefit from articulating the specific stream error code, or does it work as well to drop this to HTTP_GENERAL_PROTOCOL_ERROR?
