This proposal also allows no blocked streams, since I believe that is useful and blocked streams do add implementation complexity, so this proposal should not increase implementation complexity for anyone and should reduce it for most implementers.

I'm not aware of a use case that needs a number of blocked streams larger than 0 and smaller than the max number of open streams allowed, but if there is one, I think we should detail it and ensure it can't be better solved by flow control or another mechanism.
