Re the client Finished case, I guess that pulls in the mess of stuff around there. The spec is a little unclear what a server does in between server and client Finished. In particular, if doing 0-RTT the server needs to at least be willing to send half-RTT data. This text suggests that, since there's a binder, processing out of order is okay. (Unless I'm reading it wrong?)

I agree that, if you believe the server just shouldn't process 1RTT packets before client Finished at all, the buffering issue is solved. Though it does leave it unable to read the ACKs to half-RTT data which is differently weird. :-)

I think the general post-handshake issue is probably the more isolated instance. They're the same problem in terms of buffering, but one has a confounding factor around whether it's actually an issue.
