For what it is worth, RFC 5681 uses the term "congestion control algorithm". IMHO we should not change the term.

Adam,

Thanks for the comments.
It would be very unusual to hyphenate "congestion control",
so I'd suggest leaving this as-is to be consistent with other RFCs.


You can, of course, do what you want here, but I'll note that RFC 7233 is pretty clear about the guidelines used for editorial matters:

   The world of technical publishing has generally accepted rules for
   grammar, punctuation, capitalization, sentence length and complexity,
   parallelism, etc.  The RFC Editor generally follows these accepted
   rules as defined by the Chicago Manual of Style (CMOS) [CMOS], with a
   few important exceptions to avoid ambiguity in complex technical
   prose and to handle mixtures of text and computer languages, or to
   preserve historical formatting rules.


And CMOS §7.85 indicates that hyphenation is called for in these circumstances.
