Thank you for pointing that out.

My understanding is that there is no special casing for blocked
streams. Section 5.3.1 handles all the states we are discussing
equally, quote:

   Inside the dependency tree, a dependent stream SHOULD only be
   allocated resources if either all of the streams that it depends on
   (the chain of parent streams up to 0x0) are closed or it is not
   possible to make progress on them.

I also do not see why it would be beneficial to treat them differently.
