I think you meant to write "necessary to prevent vulnerable renegotiation on
a connection where the initial ClientHello did not use any TLS extensions".
If that is what you meant, please confirm.
What you wrote sounds more like you were expecting "old renegotiation" to
succeed. If you were indeed expecting that, then why does SCSV play any
role in that at all?
