Section 3.2.2 mentions that it is an error to attempt to insert an entry larger than the table size: 

> It is an error if the encoder attempts to add an entry that is larger than the dynamic table capacity; the decoder MUST treat this as a connection error of type QPACK_ENCODER_STREAM_ERROR.

I can't actually find a place where the document says that if you fail to decode an instruction or reference (for any reason, which would include exceeding implementation limits) that it's an error.  I think we might need one.
