That is something that would probably have to be agreed upon in the TCPM adoption call. But I am unsure; the expertise may be in the TCPM community anyway... Please feel free to chime in...

we certainly can, there are no downsides IMO. I'd be surprised if we saw significant feedback that we'd otherwise not see though.

> The new congestion control text in 793bis probably helps here. Maybe the wording in 793bis is just sufficient. But I haven't looked at the details. I guess a lot of old text was written under the assumption that there is *one* standard congestion control algorithm only. Unlike earlier CC schemes, 8312bis on standards track changes that. Now we have at leas two. It would be better to understand the implications early.

I think the text in 793bis is fine as-is. If we're still making changes to that, we could add some text about CUBIC being a specific suitable alternative, but I see no strong reason to argue for that.
