Is this better?

or alternatively that middle-boxes need to be employed to clamp the MSS

independently from the end-systems.

/ I think it is also necessary to point out that the 1220 MSS value doesn't allow for any EHs if the packet size is limited / being limited to 1280. Middle boxes should also be taking into account the present EHs if they adjust the TCP MSS.

since we are dealing with alternative mitigations we are justifying why
we don't like them, I thin they can be employed.

nice.
