I think the original intent was that they would be acked on the main path, but making them non ack-eliciting would also remove a (somewhat minor) linkability concern. 
Having them not influence congestion control seems like a strong reason to make them non ack-eliciting. 
Either way, seems like clarification would be helpful here.
