+congestion control context (min_rtt), an exponentially-weighted moving average

We never define this, but isn't the RTT estimator a subset of the congestion control context?  Also, we only use RTT estimator once in this document at the moment.

Possibly I should use path for all of these now, against @erickinnear suggestion?  Also, path is much shorter than "congestion control context"
