Well, that has always been and IMO still is for the wg to decide when the 
evidence through experiments is good enough to proceed with publishing the 
doc. E.g., when RFC 5562 was considered for publication by the wg, the wg 
requested for more experiments before making the decision and Sally 
provided what was requested. And it was just about adding ECN capability 
to SYNACK but here we are discussing much more significant changes.

And more importantly, here we are mainly discussing whether there is any 
experimental evidence at all; for example, changing MD (from 0.5 to 0.7 or 
to whatever) must be considered separately when in slow start and when in 
congestion avoidance as I have pointed out. This requires tests that 
specifically target at studying the slow start overshoot phase and the 
following recovery phase. AFAIK, there are no such experimental results, 
no analysis nor evaluation presented to support the change when 
the sender is in slow start. So, we are not discussing the level of 
evidence but whether it exists at all, which is very different.

Yes, IMO the bar should be the same. RFC 9002 was first targetted as 
experimental but was later changed to PS. I did not have time to follow 
the progress much at all but in my opinion it would probably have been 
better to publish it also as experimental first. On the other hand, it 
intends to implement NewReno as close as possible, and therefore not to 
change the congestion control principles that we have. I cannot tell how 
much experimental effort was put to verify the behaviour of those features 
that are new in QUIC and/or differ from stds track TCP but hopefully 
good enough. (Though there seems to be one issue related to resetting the 
exponential backoff of PTO, which seems to require a more accurate 
specification to ensure unambiguous interpretation and correct outcome, 
but that's an off topic here).

> I am not sure how we can maintain this kind of fairness between the docs at the moment.

I think it is the responsibility for the entire tsv area to do it, and 
eventually the TSV ADs and IESG. The process to follow is clear and 
robust, and when followed it has shown to be effectual in producing good 
quality documents. AFAIK, we have not decided to change it, maybe just 
many of us are unaware of it or have forgotten its existence?
Traditionally tsv area has been very careful in considering new CC 
proposals because congestion control is so essential for the stability 
and fairness of the Internet and I hope we are not sliping too much from 
there. AFAIK, that's one reason why the process was documented.

Thanks,
