There are also use cases in radio based sensor networks and also wired lightweight protocols that use QUIC without IP/UDP framing. For example an I2C bus or similar microcontroller network might use QUIC for security and routing but really care about keeping individual message frames short. Such use cases might, BTW also opt to truncate the trailing authentication tag.
