I think the algorithm proposed here are actually protocol independent and should not be specified in the any quic draft but in a separate draft (in tsvwg...?).

I actually think that the SHOULD we currently have is fine because it really just means if you implement this protocol and you don't know any better, we recommend you to use this value.

However, we could of course add one more sentence and explain the tradeoffs.
