The more I was thinking, if you agree that after you send a STOP_SENDING frame out, you won't indicate anything up to the app layer when you receive any RST_STREAM frame, then the actual error code value doesn't really matter. At most it gets logged locally, and that's it.

We can say that the entire number space is open to the application layer; but we only indicate it up if we haven't sent a STOP_SENDING (i.e. the app layer hasn't closed/shutdown that pipe already).

So, if we haven't sent a STOP_SENDING, then the received RST_STREAM must contain an app error code. If we have sent a STOP_SENDING, then the RST_STREAM might contain either an app error code or a STOPPING value (whatever that is...) but we don't really care, because we will just ignore it.

Then, we can either leave STOPPING as is or just get rid of it entirely and let the implementation send whatever it wants, since we will just ignore it.
