Thanks for the review Dave.

I double checked with Rong, and the exponential decay of drop probability
was inadvertently removed from the PIE pseudocode (I think she mentioned
this in the other thread as well).

In terms of enable/disable, there are two aspects.  One is that the
DOCSIS-PIE algorithm is enabled by default, but can be disabled via
explicit configuration by the network operator. The other is that the PIE
algorithm has a built-in concept of being ACTIVE vs INACTIVE.  In the
pseudocode of the PIE draft these capitalized terms are used, but in the
description in section 5.1 of the PIE draft, this same functionality is
referred to as "Turning PIE on and off".  Maybe this is an opportunity to
clean up the language in the PIE draft so it is more consistent.
DOCSIS-PIE supports the Active/Inactive aspect, but makes some adjustments
to the logic from what is included in the PIE pseudocode (and uses
different terminology).  I'll add a section that describes the deltas
there and also I'll try to re-align the terminology in the DOCSIS-PIE
pseudocode so that it matches PIE.
