 ack-eliciting packet (see {{QUIC-RECOVERY}}), but only if no other ack-eliciting
 packets have been sent since last receiving a packet.  Restarting when sending
 packets ensures that connections do not prematurely time out when initiating new
+activity.  An endpoint should be careful to avoid an idle timeout if it is idle
