Previously this said immediately ack 3 packets, but that assumes kReorderingThreshold is always 3, which seems like a poor choice.

Given we now say you should declare a packet lost based on time or packet reordering threshold, I expect most people will implement an adaptive packet reordering threshold, so even if we added a transport param, I think that's a lower bound?
