I asked a similar question: Does BXXP need a retransmission queue to
handle non-ACKed dropped frames. Marshall said no. I take that answer
to mean, "Ignore the window and suffer the consequences." If the
receiver drops a frame, subsequent frames will violate the consistency
checks and render the connection invalid.
