Should there also be changes in the recovery specs? Now that PATH_RESPONSE shouldn't be retransmitted, loss timer may not be set if the only inflight packet has only PATH_RESPONSE frame (unless one wants to waste CPU). But it still is an ack-eliciting packet. In the current recovery doc, as long as ack-eliciting packets are  inflight, loss timer will be set up. So this sounds buggy to me. Does this make sense?
