My concern was what @kazuho mentions.  There's anecdotal data that NATs are less generous with UDP ports than they are with TCP ports, and there is a scaling concern with QUIC because of that.

I'm not particularly concerned about linkability concerns here because multiple connection IDs can be used within a connection, and that is something we might want to encourage in general.

That said, the counterpoints raised here are good ones. I am fine with not specifying this in the draft, and seeing how best practices evolve.
