>  
 The alert level of all TLS alerts is "fatal"; a TLS stack MUST NOT generate
 alerts at the "warning" level.
 
+QUIC permits the use of a generic code in place of a specific error code; see
+Section 11 of {{QUIC-TRANSPORT}}. For TLS alerts, this includes replacing any
+alert with a generic alert, such as handshake_failure (0x128 in QUIC).
+Endpoints might use a generic error code to avoid possibly exposing

should this might be a MAY?
