My preference goes to numbering each Connection ID *the endpoint provides* contiguously, starting from zero.

To be precise:
* SCID of the Initial packet is "zero"
* CID of SPA is "one", if exists
* CID being exchanged using NEW_CONNECTION_ID frames will start from "one" (if a CID is not provided by the endpoint using SPA), or "two" (if SPA was used)

I believe that the definition is clear, and that it is also easy to implement.

An implementation is required to have a structure that drops duplicate NEW_CONNECTION_ID frames. Having non-negative sequence numbers for SCID of the Initial packet and CID in SPA is only a matter of how we setup the structure.
