At the moment, we're providing no guidance at all, except to not delay ACKs more than 1RTT.

This may not be the right approach, but I think doing nothing here about these ack delay/aggregation issues are almost guaranteed to provide poor performance.

Jana and I have discussed this quite a bit in the past, and it should have made it into a PR sooner.  It's not intended as a last minute addition.
