This PR is the output of the discard keys design team, and has reached consensus amongst design team members (modulo wordsmithing). It describes methods for discarding QUIC packet protection keys, and adds normative text to ensure that this mechanism is not vulnerable to deadlocks. This PR also formalizes the concept of handshake complete and handshake confirmed. Finally, this PR also moved some text around to avoid repetitions.

We believe that this PR prevents the potential deadlocks discussed in issues #2214 and #2267.
