I tend to think that if we are going to have some advice, it would be something like "MAY ignore the first ACK sample for Handshake and ApplicationData packet number spaces." IIRC, @ianswett suggested something like that somewhere.

Though, if we are going to have something like that, I think we also need to state that using a bad RTT sample might still better than relying on initial RTT of 333ms.
