   When a zero-length connection ID is being used, the active_connection_id_limit

@DavidSchinazi If you want to refer to the source CID set by the client in its first Initial packet, you should really use a different name than `initial_connection_id`, because this is widely used to refer to the initial destination CID. Maybe you should call that `initial_source_connection_id`. But using the same name for 2 concepts seems bad.
