Doesn't it depend on how "end-to-end implementation" is defined? Bob,
I thought you championed the idea of re-ECN, which is all about the
need for network involvement in congestion control. The end systems
make the decision, but it isn't "end-to-end" in the sense of
interaction only between end-to-end peers at layer 4.
