It's great to see the change that the server MUST send all settings that differ from defaults instead of just those that differ from the implied settings for early data.

I'm a bit concerned that this says effectively says that it's optional (not RFC 2119 word) for clients to remember SETTINGS when sending early data, because now a server can't assume that a client is using the remembered SETTINGS in early data instead of the default settings.
