Thanks for finding that @erickinnear.  That supports the change being editorial-only.

As for the perceived conflict, yeah, the text is not ideal.  I'll find some way to reword it.  Perhaps by observing that you can never run out of zero-length connection IDs.

@igorlord, allowing a peer to exhaust connection IDs to maintain linkability across migrations is an attack that I'd rather we not have.
