Probabilistically disabling spinning, which seems necessary if we want some grease to help us reserve the right to change the semantics of the bit at the spin bit's location in the wire image, should ensure that endpoints that want to disable spinning for their own reasons will have a large anonymity set to hide in, even in a future with perfect implementation and deployment of the spin bit.

I opened PR https://github.com/quicwg/base-drafts/pull/1931 to discuss this.
