:+1: Thank you for the PR. LGTM, and to me it seems that the add text is at the right location.

Using the loss of ACK-only packets is one way of deviating from CC that is described in this document, and therefore it seems correct to me to have that stated right after the general requirements regarding CC when one chooses a design that is different from what is being specified in quic-recovery.
