If my reading of our code is correct, we're using PROTOCOL_VIOLATION for that case, but that's not a very informative choice.  In gQUIC, we used public reset for this(as you probably remember), but stateless reset is post-handshake only.

CONNECTION_REFUSED sounds better, but I think an important question is wether we expect clients to treat this error code differently than other error codes which occur during the handshake.  If we're not going to treat it differently, then it matters less.

That being said, I'm a general fan of more granular error codes for debugging.
