@kazuho That matches what I remember from the discussion in Tokyo.

I think we actually need normative text along the lines that @MikeBishop suggests. I don't think it's a problem that during the time you process a NEW_CONNECTION_ID frame the number of active connection IDs might temporarily reach 0, if we assume that these frames are processed atomically. And I can't really think of a reason why any implementation might want split processing of the Retire Prior To field and adding the new CID.

I updated #3201 with a suggestion in 8354804a2a30580fd1b7deadb19f3baf3ad68fd8. WDYT?
