Overall the problem is scoped well. Just a few clarifications about
"(2) A document that clarifies the current practices of
application design and reasons behind them and discusses the
tradeoffs surrounding the use of many concurrent transport
connections to one peer and/or to different peers."

This seems a bit too broad. Multiple transport connections to a single peer/server is often used in applications like FDM and other download accelerators. Are we talking about how multiple TANA flows will share a bottleneck in this context or in general about how current TCP flows do this and
best practices for that such as how many connections to open depending on network characteristics?

When we talk about connections to different peers in multi-source downloads what exactly are the tradeoffs we are talking about: is it the impact on ISPs, or that the application could try to choose peers whose AS path or routing path is maximally disjoint. And again is this about how TANA flows
would work connecting to multiple peers while sharing a common bottleneck at the client or really about multiple TCP flows to different peers and how to choose the peers such that you reduce common bottlenecks in the network.

Maybe the multiple connections work item needs to be elaborated upon to give the correct context.

Also, I think the name change is useful since there is not inkling that this really is about congestion control. Scavenger Network Congestion Protocols sounds good.

It should change.

I care about congestion control and nothing in the expansion of TANA
indicated it was about congestion (to me).

If you want people who are interested in congestion control to take part
in your group, "Techniques for Advanced Networking Applications" will do
nothing to attract their attention.  It is completely generic phrase.
It could refer to UTF encoding strategies or peer-to-peer load balancing.

It may not be important to you to attract congestion control expertise.
If it is, I recommend changing the name to something that will get
busy congestion control people to read past the name.

YMMV.

A successful algorithm here would not necessarily "lower than"
best-effort, because the "low priority' flow could actually achieve
higher throughput than a conventional TCP flow.

I believe that the key phrase in the proposed charter is very much
on target -- that the "TANA flows" rapidly yield to conventional TCP.
It is possible to both rapidly yield *and* to rapidly claim bandwidth
that conventional TCP algorithms would have left unused.

The extent to which a given algorithm can rapidly claim bandwidth
without imperiling existing TCP traffic is of course something that
the WG would have to review. But given the charter objective of
"saturation" it is important to understand that this is not necessarily
"low priority" traffic. It is undoubtedly very jitter-tolerant traffic
that can be quite elastic in its bandwidth utilization for any short
period of time.

Are you sure about that ?

A peer can (for example) query route views, or I (or a host of others)
can send it BGP / address block tables. It would not be hard to
collate address information with ASN and ASN paths and draw
conclusions. I don't see why an ISP is necessarily involved.

Hey, stupid thought...

Could you do proximity based on "who's your DNS resolver"?  Do a few
name lookups: one to register YOU as using YOUR DNS resolver to the
remote coordinator, and one to get "who are other peers using the same
resolver"?

An ugly, UGLY hack, but it might be interesting to think about.

Has anyone done this already?

Marshall -

I mentioned that this is one deployment model and is as it works
today but, the charter is unclear if they want to support any other
model. I do think it is considerably harder to deduce a current
AS_path from simple prefix -> ASN information.

Doesn't Ono [1] do that?  Or am I missing something?  CDNs also
use DNS redirects to redirect clients to nearest servers.
