Section 7

REFUSED_STREAM (0x7): The endpoint refuses the stream prior to performing *any application processing*, see Section 8.1.4 for details.



Sections 8.1.4

The REFUSED_STREAM error code can be included in a RST_STREAM frame to indicate that the stream is being closed prior to *any processing* having occurred



Question: Must an endpoint that is refusing a stream always process the headers and update its HPACK state?  If so, the text in 8.1.4 should probably be more specific and say "any _application_ processing".  And perhaps explicitly clarify that HPACK state has to be updated before refusing the stream.
