ianswett commented on this pull request.

 Out-of-order packets SHOULD be acknowledged more quickly, in order to accelerate
 loss recovery.  The receiver SHOULD send an immediate ACK when it receives a new
-packet which is not one greater than the largest received packet number.
+packet which is not the next expected one. That is, its packet number is not one

Thanks for the suggestions, I reworked the text to only have one SHOULD and mention the 1/8 RTT as the max amount of time to send immediate acks.
