I was saying that we specify only limits and not guarantees since it
can be worked out from limits. Initial thinking was that the kernel will
be made aware of only limits and users could set the limits appropriately
to obtain the desired guarantees. I understand your concerns/objections
on this and we will address this in our next version of RFC as Balbir said.

Bharata.
