I don't think this is a fetch() level problem - those are both basically
transport issues with unacknowledged data and the transport is always going
to need a copy of that information to accommodate packet loss.. 0-rtt fail
is really just a twist on loss from a replay pov. Our definition of
transport has moved up a bit in the stack from socket buffers, but it
hasn't made it to fetch() yet :)
