IMHO, we should come up with a draft on the use of SACK in recovery instead of
spending effort on experimental documents describing NewReno and other
variants. As Sally pointed out in the IETF meeting, we can easily come up
with scenarioes where NewReno and its variants work badly or too aggressively.
But with SACK, we can do better. As of now, there is no internet draft on how
to make good use of SACK. I think in 1 year's time, SACK should be widely
deployed. So we should focus on how to make good use of SACK info, and also
how to avoid abusing it.
