Flow control and prioritization are different things. A server is free to penalize a stream for control overhead, it just means sending less data on that resource allocation cycle.

Correct me if Im wrong!

To be sure, were discussing what a good server does for a naive client. (Supporting lots of cookies at all is a big favor.) If the server is naive, all bets are off.
