@tatsuhiro-t my understanding is that amplification limit is based on the UDP datagram layer, not the QUIC packet layer. If you receive any bytes from the peer you can see 3x times that in response. They don't have to be valid QUIC packets. I thought there was text that was explicit about that. If not, the text should probably be clarified.
