key reset.  I still prefer the trade-offs of having a “slow the TLS but
keep the TCP layer open” and starting over.  Much simpler to prove it’s
correct.

What can change when that happens? Furthermore, rekeying is a matter of
getting more PRF output: how does that introduce security concerns.

I don't see why the incompetence of implementors should govern our
decisions. If something cannot be implemented correctly it must be
removed,  but why is rekeying such a thing?
