 At any time, endpoints MAY change the Destination Connection ID they send to a
 value that has not been used on another path.
-An endpoint MUST use a new connection ID if it initiates connection migration as
-described in {{initiating-migration}} or probes a new network path as described
-in {{probing}}.  An endpoint MUST use a new connection ID in response to a
-change in the address of a peer if the packet with the new peer address uses an
-active connection ID that has not been previously used by the peer.
+An endpoint MUST use a new connection ID when it initiates connection migration

We do have this text in [5.1.2](
> As discussed in Section 9.5, each connection ID MUST be used on packets sent from only one local address. An endpoint that migrates away from a local address SHOULD retire all connection IDs used on that address once it no longer plans to use that address.

Is the missing piece that it should also be used for only one remote address, but this is the only scenario in which the server changes address?
