When retiring a connection ID, an endpoint remembers a sequence number and maybe
a packet number for a RETIRE_CONNECTION_ID frame.  An endpoint SHOULD limit the
state it commits by limiting the number of connection IDs that it tracks for
retirement to at least twice the active_connection_id_limit. An endpoint MUST
NOT forget a connection ID without retiring it, though MAY choose to treat
having too many connection IDs in need of retirement as a connection error of

I think that this is better than including a lot more words.  I've tweaked the last sentence to include a prohibition on forgetting connection IDs.
