We are, as much as possible, attempting to limit the number of
settings that we allow in the protocol.  I take that to mean that
there needs to be a high bar on the addition of settings.
Specifically, if there is an alternative solution to the problem, then
it's not enough.

In this case, if you are concerned about the size, the flow control
window will allow you to control the size and give you time to
generate RST_STREAM as appropriate.  ...Trade off as appropriate
against your desire to maximize throughput.
