 When a PTO timer expires, a sender MUST send at least one ack-eliciting packet
 as a probe, unless there is no data available to send.  An endpoint MAY send up
-to two ack-eliciting packets, to avoid an expensive consecutive PTO expiration
-due to a single packet loss.
+to two full sized datagrams containing ack-eliciting packets, to avoid an
+expensive consecutive PTO expiration due to a single lost datagram.

I mean, there is no limit to coalescing AFAIK, so the limit of two here seems arbitrary, albeit probably very sensible.
