Link credit is an absolute value, but its effect is relative to
another absolute value, delivery-count, which both ends track
semi-independently and reconcile the two at points, which is where the
complexity comes in with reducing credit after it is already granted
and potentially used but not yet known to be used or not used,
something I'm not sure proton currently accounts for, or at least not
in a way an application might expect.
