Below is data from 410,803 of the Alexa top 500k web server that 
confirms what I said in the presentation about space for future 
evolution of AccECN:

  * the nonce pattern on the SYN-ACK could be reused now (0.0007%)
  * the broken reflection pattern is still far too prevalent to re-use
    it (0.35%).

If anyone wants the list of broken servers that Anna attached for me, 
pls ask.
The whole dataset is also available via: 

@Anna, thanks v much for responding so quickly - it was me that hadn't 
read your email in time for the talk.

Hi Bob,

I had a look at the data and I found *1,438 servers *over the top 
410,803 Alexa (0.35%) that reply SYN/ACK+111 to a SYN+111 (attached the 

Only *3 servers *(0.0007%) reply SYN/ACK+101 to a SYN+111:


Let me know if I can help you with something else!

    Could you do me a favour and look up how many servers responded to
    an AccECN (111) SYN with a SYN/ACK carrying respectively 'Nonce'
    (101) or 'Broken' (111)?

    And also the total number of tests sent with an AccECN SYN, so I can
    give proportions in the AccECN draft.


    Bob (too lazy to look at the data myself)
