This version contains three sets of changes:

- Editorial changes to the Abstract and Introduction, to address Stephen Farrell’s comment by clarifying what it means to “operate within the envelope defined by this memo". 

- Update Section 4.5 (“Ceasing Transmission”) to address Alissa Cooper’s DISCUSS, clarifying that it is the RTP flows sharing a 5-tuple that are stopped when the circuit breaker triggers, rather than the entire call.

- Update Section 7 to address Mirja Mühlewind’s DISCUSS, expanding the discussion of how the RTP circuit breaker should react to ECN-CE marks. This changes “ECN-CE marked packets SHOULD be treated as if they were lost when calculating if the congestion-based RTP circuit breaker” into a more nuanced recommendation, based on likely future evolution of ECN response.

This changes the normative requirements of the specification, so a brief new WG last call is likely needed. 

Cheers,
Colin
