I think this is in general a positive move. It closes some things out. However, I do wonder if it might make us revisit other things that were previously put to bed. For example, we might want to follow up the discussion about separate unidirectional streams [1], because the space is now smaller.

 Within each stream, the basic unit of HTTP/3 communication is a frame

A minor contention: IMO SETTINGS or GOAWAY don't exemplify "relationships between streams". In fact, removing tree depencies helps makes request streams way more independent.
