Hi Lars and all,

I agree with every point that Lars made and want to emphasize that
I would also expect to have a working TCP scheme that fulfills at least
most of the promises that L4S made. It should'nt be necessary for others
to find the flaws within the current approach, I'd rather expect that
the proponents show what currently works and even what doesn't work so well.

I think it's then up to the WG to decide whether the remaining issues
are acceptable or if further improvements are necessary.

Regards,
 Roland

That makes it quite unappealing to join the discussion for someone who isn't part of those camps. I agree that more of that kind of "discussion" is not going to be helpful. I think the two camps need to realize that they need to convince the *rest of the WG* of their respective views, not each other.

(And we can certainly debate what counts as a serious regression and what doesn't.) Basically, a strawman that satisfies (some of) the Prague requirements without regressions.
