More fundamentally than the objection below (which is minor), this unnecessarily creates lots of special cases.  Maybe that is what we're looking for here, but I would rather say that transport parameters that can apply to 0-RTT need to be remembered, with a requirement to demonstrate that they don't apply before they can be forgotten/changed.

I don't like the drop requirement.  The client is violating the rules, and for no good reason.  The server can punish clients who act in this way.
