Subject: [PATCH 11/12] [DCCP]: Make code assumptions explicit

From: Gerrit Renker <gerrit@....abdn.ac.uk>

This removes several `XXX' references which indicate a missing support
for non-1-byte feature values: this is unnecessary, as all currently known
(standardised) SP feature values are 1-byte quantities.
