TCP Split Handshake and Nmap

Hi folks,

Has anybody read "The TCP Split Handshake: Practical Effects on Modern
Network Equipment" published in the Macrothink Network Protocols and
Algorithms journal [1]?  I thought section 8 regarding port scan
detection of a split handshake was particularly interesting and reckon
Nmap could easily handle a SYN or an ACK in response to a SYN probe in
order to mark a port as open.

If this was something we'd like to do, would we add ER_SYN and ER_ACK to

Related: what is ER_INITACK? it doesn't seem to be referenced anywhere...
