> -Not all changes of peer address are intentional migrations. The peer could
-experience NAT rebinding: a change of address due to a middlebox, usually a NAT,
-allocating a new outgoing port or even a new outgoing IP address for a flow.  An
-endpoint MUST perform path validation ({{migrate-validate}}) if it detects any
-change to a peer's address, unless it has previously validated that address.
+An endpoint also MUST NOT send packets from a different local address, actively
+initiating migration, if the peer sent the `disable_active_migration` transport
+parameter during the handshake. An endpoint which has sent this transport
+parameter, but detects that a peer has nonetheless migrated to a different
+network MUST either drop the incoming packets on that path without generating a
+stateless reset or proceed with path validation and allow the peer to migrate.
+This helps to prevent third parties in the network causing connections to close
+due to spoofed addresses or other manipulation of observed traffic. An endpoint
+MUST NOT actively initiate migration if its peer supplies a zero-length
+connection ID as packets without a Destination Connection ID cannot be
+attributed to a connection based on address tuple.
