I don't see this being well-defined at the moment. But here is what [DCEP, chap 6](https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-rtcweb-data-protocol-09#section-6) states:

    If the DATA_CHANNEL_OPEN message doesn't satisfy the conditions
    above, [...], the receiver MUST close the corresponding Data Channel
    using the procedure described in [I-D.ietf-rtcweb-data-channel] [...]

Based on that, I would say it makes sense to close the data channel. I would prefer that over ignoring incoming messages on unassigned stream IDs. If there's agreement, this should probably be added to [rtcweb-data-channel-13, chap 6.6](https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-rtcweb-data-channel-13#section-6.6).

@tuexen Thoughts?
