The proposed commit says:  "If an endpoint uses a different controller than that specified in this document, it MUST conform to the congestion control guidelines specified in {{!RFC8085}}."  RFC 8085's section 3.1 appears to be the salient piece here, along with its reference to RFC 2914.   A more direct pointer might be useful.  

I also note that you have a MUST pointer to what amounts to a set of guidelines which are all SHOULD or RECOMMENDED, which  is a level lower.  The result is likely to be a little less strict than the naive reader might believe.
