I don’t think we should invent new mechanism for ATLS if we can use Connection ID.

My personal opinion is that it will be easier for ATLS to use DLS
natively than to produce a reliable in-order stream abstraction for
TLS's use.  (I say, as someone who is not going to be doing the
work, so take that for what it is.)
