I don't think we should rename the MAX_STREAMS frame. It's a form of flow control, and we use MAX_DATA and MAX_STREAM_DATA for data limits.
If you were suggesting to rename those to DATA_LIMIT and STREAM_DATA_LIMIT, your renaming would at least be consistent. I'd push back against that as well though.
