I think that I know what you mean here, but can you try to expand a
little?  Do you refer to the possible gap between close on the
initiating direction and the first frame on the responding direction;
a gap that might cause the stream to escape accounting?  I think that
is a tractable problem - any unbounded-ness is under the control of
the initiating peer.
