A server can still negotiate an SSLv3 connection as it does today.
It just can't re-negotiate that connection later.  This is true for
all TLS versions as well; you can still allow unpatched clients to
connect, just not renegotiate.  The servers impacted by this change
are those that require renegotiation to obtain client credentials.
