In response to Jana: I think it would be a good step to first make sure we understand the same by IW - which is initial cwnd, and somewhat dependent on RTT - and a function of the capacity; and max_burst; which isn't related to RTT, but could be related to when it is helpful to "pace". As a starting point, RFC4960 recommends max_burst as 4. Would we agree  for instance, largest(max_burst) <= IW?
