Good point.  We don't use epoch anywhere else in this doc except this pseudocode, and it's different from the definition in security contexts, so I'd like to avoid the term.

Do you have any other suggestions?  Congestion Period, etc?  I'm not even that happy about using InRecovery here, since in TCP that has a distinct meaning that doesn't map 1:1 to QUIC.
