I'm not sure what you're suggesting here.  "The user" in this case is writing a client-server application that's talking over QUIC.  They're using a managed code base that gives them QUIC streams, just like it would give them a TCP stream.  What are you suggesting they should be doing instead?

I agree that this is kind of an awkward situation.  I think the best solution probably is passing an error code to the connection constructor, at least under the assumption that you need to abruptly close the stream rather than considering it simply to have ended.
