 When an Initial packet is sent by a client that has not previously received an
-Initial or Retry packet from the server, the client populates the DCID field
-with an unpredictable value.  This DCID MUST be at least 8 bytes in length.
-Until a packet is received from the server, the client MUST use the same DCID
-value on all packets in this connection. This DCID is used to determine packet
+Initial or Retry packet from the server, the client populates the Destination
+Connection ID field with an unpredictable value.  This Destination Connection ID

It might be worth clarifying that the 'unpredictable value' is constant for a given connection?
