It also says:

This note outlines a procedure that ECN-Capable TCP implementations
may wish to use in this case to ensure connectivity. We are not
suggesting that TCP implementations should be required to use this
procedure.

If you don't like linux's behavior,
su
echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn
echo "net/ipv4/tcp_ecn=0" >> /etc/sysctl.conf

If you don't like nifty.com's ECN violating behavior,
send them mail.

See the faq, as mentioned at the footer of all
Linux-kernel mailing lists, and specifically at
http://www.tux.org/lkml/#s14-2 for additional information.
