There are certainly cases where this does not require a mis-reporting receiver(ie: what I described above), but I think your argument is that you don't care about them?  If so, this does make it somewhat critical to send a reasonable number of non-delayed ACKs to ensure min_rtt is discovered relatively quickly.

I completely agree that I don't want to change the definition of min_rtt, FWIW.
