> What happens if both stream A and B are blocked? Should my server endeavour to serve dependent streams in that case? I *think* the answer is yes because of the logic around having grouping nodes formed from idle streams, but I’m not 100% sure and would like clarification.

Section 5.3.4 Prioritization State Management states:
> Resources are shared between streams with the same parent stream, which means that if a stream in that set closes or becomes blocked, any spare capacity allocated to a stream is distributed to the immediate neighbors of the stream.

In my understanding in your example A and B are blocked, C and D are
immediate neighbors of A so according to this they would get the
resources of A.
