> min() is not helpful except as a warning - and we already have that warning.

I think we have a corner case.

Consider a case where the server advertises idle-timeout of 10 seconds and the client advertises 5 seconds. Should a client use a connection that has been idle for 6 seconds to send new requests?

The client should, if we require servers to keep the connection state open for the timeout _it_ advertised (i.e. 10 seconds) regardless of the value advertised by the client.

The client should not, if we think that the server are allowed to drop the connection after min() seconds.

Do we clarify which way the server behavior in this example should be?
