>  An endpoint SHOULD ensure that its peer has a sufficient number of available and
-unused connection IDs.  While each endpoint independently chooses how many
-connection IDs to issue, endpoints SHOULD provide and maintain at least eight
-connection IDs.  The endpoint can do this by always supplying a new connection
-ID when a connection ID is retired by its peer or when the endpoint receives a
-packet with a previously unused connection ID.  Endpoints that initiate
-migration and require non-zero-length connection IDs SHOULD provide their peers
-with new connection IDs before migration, or risk the peer closing the
+unused connection IDs. Endpoints store received connection IDs for future use. 
+They advertise the limit how many unretired connection IDs they are willing to
