If the client doesn't stop sending requests in a deterministic
fashion, then the server is unable to send GOAWAY without encountering
the issue that Daniel first raised.  Unless you consider this to be a
GOAWAY_REQUEST and there is some expectation that the client sends a
GOAWAY when it is ready to finish up (with the server setting some
upper bound on the time it's prepared to wait for this event, of
course).
