I was thinking:

The client creates a valid connection. Then initiates a migration to a new path that it does not own for the sole purpose of DoS'ing some other poor individual. While there is a setup cost, the migration can be repeated for the same or different targets until the peer decides it is enough and closes.

How is the initial CWND sufficient protection against that?
