Thanks for the discussion!

can you tell us more about the impl concerns of initcwnd stored on the
route?

and while I'm asking for info, can you expand on the conclusion
regarding poor cache hit rates for reusing learned cwnds? (ok, I admit I
only read the slides.. maybe the paper has more info?)

article and slides much appreciated and very interetsing. I've long been
of the opinion that the downsides of being too aggressive once in a
while aren't all that serious anymore.. as someone else said in a
non-reservation world you are always trying to predict the future anyhow
and therefore overflowing a queue is always possible no matter how
conservative.
