@ianswett While I would not argue strongly against continue allowing that, I would appreciate it if you could clarify why allowing a zero-byte CID would be useful.

As pointed out in, when you provide a zero-byte CID in SPA, you need to be prepared for receiving a short header packet using zero-length CID from any IP address, and be capable of associating that to an existing connection. This is because the client (or the network) might change the client's address tuple when it sends packets to the preferred address.

I would anticipate that you wouldn't want to do that in your file upload case (or in any deployment that might accept multiple connections concurrently).
