After I read it the question that was left was, "where is the debit rule?" If that question doesn't make sense then maybe "credit" isn't the real number word for flow control.

Gab> Not sure I understand the comment. Could this be related to Eliot's comment that the algorithm is clearly in the hands of the receiver? All the sender has to do to debit towards any available credit is to send as much of that credit as he needs to send. The actual over-the-wire(less) transmission dynamics, of course, are in the hands of the underlying TCP implementation (which would presumably heed congestion control rules, but that is opaque to HTTP 2.0).

Thanks,Gabriel
