I'm not finding the text in transport that says they're not ack-eliciting, and I'd rather make them ack-eliciting unless there's an important reason they can't be.  I did find text that says acknowledgement is not a substitute for PATH_RESPONSE:
    "Receipt of an acknowledgment for a packet containing a
      PATH_CHALLENGE frame is not adequate validation, since the
      acknowledgment can be spoofed by a malicious peer."
