Section 2.1 says:

  When receiving an ICMP error message that indicates a hard error
  condition, TCP will simply abort the corresponding connection,
  regardless of the connection state.

Question. I was under the impression that recent specifications have
started to say to not blindly believe ICMP errors due to denial-
of-service concerns? If this is not the case, then no problem.

Update Aug 2008: the IETF specs are still saying this, even
if implementations are not. Suggesting that the authors consider
stating some of the actual reality as well.
