We're somewhat inconsistent about whether transport parameters et al. get backticks or not across the documents.  For example,

>   the ACK Delay field is scaled by multiplying the encoded value by 2 to the
>  power of the value of the `ack_delay_exponent` transport parameter set by the
>  sender of the ACK frame; see {{transport-parameter-definitions}}.  Scaling in

> The Retire Prior To field counts connection IDs established during connection
> setup and the preferred_address transport parameter; see {{retiring-cids}}. The
> Retire Prior To field MUST be less than or equal to the Sequence Number field.

Same goes for error code names, frame types, etc.
