Hi Jake

And thanks for the input. 
Given all the input sofar my impression is that It is difficult to say how serious issue 16 really is. 
Surely there is a possibility that L4S flows can get an potentially unfair advantage over a congested node that is  RFC3168 capable (and ECN enabled). The question is here when things are deemed as unfair and when starvation is a fact, opinions differ. 
Another question is to how large extent there will be legacy RFC3168 ECN capable (and ECN enabled ) bottlenecks that will "never" be updated or replaced. This question is currently difficult to answer. 

Yet another aspect is how successful it will be to implement RFC3168 bottleneck detection e.g. in TCP Prague, I am quite confident that these will not always be successful. But then, given the current deployment situation and possibility to update nodes in the networks (OpenWrt routers appear to support automatic updates) I am not convinced that these need to be 100% bulletproof either.
