I'm not suggesting we should change the existing text, but I believe the change suggested above does fit with the principle you're stating @janaiyengar because you would still never allow the adjusted_rtt to go below min_rtt.

I will note that I hadn't anticipated the RTTVar inflation caused by sometimes ignoring ack_delay completely.
