I am not sure why this affects load balancing at all. The CID is part of the invariants, so LBs should be able to read and parse the CID without regard for the other versions.

There is a legitimate coordination problem for DDoS boxes, I agree. However, I'm pretty comfortable for this kind of mechanism not working in cloud deployments -- we're just looking for some big players and the browsers to support this. There's basically no benefit for endpoints except preserving extensibility of the protocol.
