 Each endpoint unilaterally decides if the spin bit is enabled or disabled for a
 connection. Implementations MUST allow administrators of clients and servers
 to disable the spin bit either globally or on a per-connection basis. Even when
-the spin bit is not disabled by the administrator, implementations MUST disable
-the spin bit for a given connection with a certain likelihood. The random
-selection process SHOULD be designed such that on average the spin bit is
-disabled for at least one eighth of network paths. The selection process
-performed at the beginning of the connection SHOULD be applied for all paths
-used by the connection.

Yeah, it seems to be duplicative as the text now talks about paths rather than connections.
