I find this text to be really unclear. Furthermore, if implementers don't pick up the SHOULD we're going to have detectable stateless resets all over the place.

And given the final version of extended connection IDs, we're talking about 2 additional bytes over the draft-20 status quo?

I don't find this change to be necessary, though I wouldn't raise a huge stink about it. However, I'd like to consider changing SHOULD to MUST. This seems like a potential security vulnerability.

At an absolute minimum, I'll propose an editorial rewrite to make these considerations clearer.
