 ### Clearer Loss Epoch
 
-QUIC ends a loss epoch when a packet sent after loss is declared is
-acknowledged. TCP waits for the gap in the sequence number space to be filled,
-and so if a segment is lost multiple times in a row, the loss epoch may not
-end for several round trips. Because both should reduce their congestion windows
-only once per epoch, QUIC will do it correctly once for every round trip that
-experiences loss, while TCP may only do it once across multiple round trips.
+QUIC starts a loss epoch when a packet is lost and ends one when any packet

I actually think one reads more clearly, but maybe that's me?
