> +Similarly, an endpoint MUST NOT reuse a connection ID when sending to more than

I don't dislike the flow once flipped, but the first sentences of this and the preceding paragraph are trying to be very clearly the main requirement, with the subsequent items explaining motivation and any exceptions.

This is in response to the original issue we're trying to address, which is that all of these requirements were in place but got lost in the rest of the text, so the idea was to highlight the main requirements in a single place.
