Hi

The SCReAM code is freely available on https://github.com/EricssonResearch/scream for anybody interested to run their own experiment with whatever AQM/ECN configuration. 
Please note that SCReAM is configured in an L4S mode when the network AQM does L4S marking (mimicking ECT(1)). For CoDel-ECN however, SCReAM runs in normal ECN mode with a beta of 0.8 (=20% reduction on CWND for each congestion event)

I tried also with other different ramp markers (1ms/10ms), (2ms/10ms),(5ms/15ms). There are slight variations  in throughput and latency but not dramatic.
And truth to be told, the ECN behavior is better tuned in the code than the L4S behavior. 
There is room for improvement as regards to the L4S behavior (for instance faster ramp-up) and it may well be the case that SCReAM is completely scrapped in favor of new designs. 
But the bottomline, the L4S thresholds and L4S code is not carefully picked to show a good performance.
