Thanks for reminding me @kazuho I think this text mitigates that issue:
"An endpoint MUST NOT provide more connection IDs than the peer's limit. An endpoint that receives more connection IDs than its advertised active_connection_id_limit MUST close the connection with an error of type CONNECTION_ID_LIMIT_ERROR."

However, if a peer sends a NCID and doesn't increase Retire Prior To in this case, then it's unclear which RETIRE_CONNECTION_ID frame(s) were received.  In that case, is it ever clear which RETIRE_CONNECTION_ID frames were received?  I'm not sure #3547 actually solves this, or just makes it much less likely?

I'm starting to think we need a max_connection_id in RETIRE_CONNECTION_ID(or a separate MAX_CONNECTION_ID frame) as a flow control style mechanism to solve this fully?  I think this PR may be a good change anyway, but I'm not sure it's sufficient.
