We have run rrul in a few different ways, one of which was a 50:1 asymmetric link with higher flow counts in the ‘wrong' direction.

With SCE, the existing multiplicative backoff CE signal is still available as a backstop, when the SCE signal alone either isn’t enough or isn’t being responded to, without necessarily having to resort to drop. In a test like this, you’ll typically see both heavy SCE marking and CE marks as well.
