That almost works, except that PTO isn't a shared variable.  It's subjective and so endpoints might disagree on where this line is.  At 3PTO, that's probably not a disagreement worth having, but you are effectively recommending instant compliance if you set the bar that low, as packet loss on any packet sent that attempts to comply might cause it to take up to 3PTO to get through.
