That's all fine, but of course there are a million ideas for improving
TCP in wireless links that we didn't put there - what we don't want
to miss are the open research issues, not all their possible solutions...
dear Michael ,
i do not think it is one of million ideas, since it is unique and relevant under the assumption of lossy link.
another relevant piece of work that you may want cite to improve this draft is the icnp08 paper:
David A. Eckhardt, Peter Steenkiste:
Improving Wireless LAN Performance via Adaptive Local Error Control. 327-338
which very clearly explains that you have to design a good wireless link so that losses not due to congestion should not be relevant (indeed this is the case in current 3G systems obtained via ARQ). this is old stuff today, already documented in RFC 3819 - Advice for Internet Subnetwork Designers, by P. Karn.
