@martinthomson, @kazuho: I added text for CRYPTO, MAX_STREAMS and STREAMS_BLOCKED frames, however:

- for CRYPTO frames, there's no flow control. It would be awkward to use a FLOW_CONTROL_ERROR here, so I opted for just using a FRAME_ENCODING_ERROR,
- for MAX_STREAMS frames FRAME_ENCODING_ERROR is the only applicable error. We do have a STREAM_LIMIT_ERROR, but this error is described as "Too many streams opened", and MAX_STREAMS doesn't open any streams by itself.
