@larseggert Can you clarify what "ACK every burst" is?  Is this along the lines of the optimization described in recovery: "As an optimization, a receiver MAY process multiple packets before sending any ACK frames in response. In this case the receiver can determine whether an immediate or delayed acknowledgement should be generated after processing incoming packets."

Would adding an "Always ACK every IW to limit bursts" be a helpful addition?
