I think that this requirement only applies when Initial packets are in flight.  The text allows for Handshake, but I think that we don't need these special rules for Handshake packets.  Though we might want to send more aggressively for Handshake, the standard rules are sufficient there.  I wonder if we need to change the text.

        // Crypto retransmission timeout.
+     else if (handshaking client)
+       SendOnePacket()

Is this right?

Or is it this?
