Thanks for pointing this out.

The intent was to explain why 25ms was chosen, given it's smaller than most TCP implementations default delayed ack time.  

There were more exceptions before, but now there's only the one, which makes the preceding paragraph awkward as well.
"The majority of constants were derived from best common practices among widely deployed TCP implementations on the internet. Exceptions follow."
