Maybe, but I still think the code is overkill. Each frame has to define what it means to be malformed, and most frames are simple enough that malforming them is only possible by getting the size wrong. 

The proposal on #2662 would mean most error become a generic FRAME_SIZE_ERROR. This is equivalent to the HTTP/2 status quo. It would help to know if current deployments find that insufficient and/or why they feel that a similar error in HTTP/3 would be insufficient so as to warrant MALFORMED_FRAME.
