OK, I see in Security Considerations.

For your use-case, is it acceptable that a client could open two 5-tuple connections to achieve double the rate?

Should say IP flow (5-tuple) but that may be in the wrong location.

This document doesn't define a "flow". What did you have in mind as a definition?

It sounds like you are thinking of a TCP or UDP connection? So if the intent were to limit video rates, each TCP or UDP connection would be granted the specified rate?

I have added a new I-D for consideration.  It permits setting *per flow* maximum bit rates.  This can serve in some applications, e.g. video throttling, to limit features such as resolutions as opposed to requiring deeper inspection.

Thank you.
