I have a few comments/questions...

- I think the document should also refer to PLPMTUD as a valid 
IETF-specified way to choose a segment size.
- The wording in the draft is not clear  whether this is an upper bound 
to the SMSS, or just one of many ways to discover a sensible SMSS.
- Is the default RMSS still 536 bytes also for IPv6, since [RFC1122]
does not apply in this context to IPv6.
3) ECN
- The document speaks only of loss, but I'm assuming that this applies
equally to ECN. If that is so, perhaps we should explicitly say so up-front.

My other comments duplicated some of those already sent:-)
