I've had conversations with a number of people who are interested in identifying QUIC using the QUIC bit.  Only one packet does not have the QUIC bit always set to 1 currently, and that's version negotiation.

Given we have no use for the extra bits in VN, I'm inclined to specify implementations must set it to 1.

If we think we'll one day want to claw back use of the QUIC bit and allow it to be 0, then this is a poor plan, but I don't think that will end up being practical on the public internet.

A related question is whether we want to put the QUIC bit in the invariants.  It's clearly not technically necessary, but it would recognize the ossification I anticipate.
