Hi,

since this document specifies an optional component to TCP, I'd argue  
that it should not update RFC793. If you look at the RFC Editor page,  
almost no other RFC updates RFC793, because even widely-deployed  
extensions (timestamps, SACK, etc.) are all optional. Even RFC2581  
doesn't update RFC793.
