> For HTTP_MALFORMED_FRAME, I think @LPardue PR #2662 that removes it and replaces it with a small number of specific error codes is like a good way to go instead of the 2^60 hack.
> @kazuho Are you happy with that PR? I'm going to write a varint PR with the assumption #2662 or something like it is likely to land, so it will be transport-only.

#2662 works for me. My complaint is that HTTP/3 should not "hack" QUIC. Eliminating HTTP_MALFORMED_FRAME is a way of achieving that, and I do not have a strong preference on communicating the malformed frame ID.
