@huitema if I understand correctly, that requires the load balancer to have the decryption keys for the 0RTT tokens the server distributes?  That is certainly possible in some cases, but I think that will be too complex for many.

Alternately, giving out a CID with the 0RTT Token could make this a fairly easy problem to solve.
