> +### Short Headers {#short-headers-properties}
+### Connection Migration {#migration-properties}
+Connection Migration ({{migration}}) provides endpoints with the ability to
+transition between IP addresses and ports on multiple paths, using one path at a
+time for transmission and receipt of non-probing frames.  Path validation
+({{migrate-validate}}) establishes that a peer is both willing and able
+to receive packets sent on a particular path.  This helps reduce the effects of
+address spoofing, by limiting the number of packets sent to a spoofed address,
+unless an attacker is able to also receive packets sent to that address.
+This section describes the intended security properties of connection migration
+when under various types of attack, as described in more detail by {{?RFC3552}}.

Added text to be more clear about that
