    Pipelined requests actually increase congestion because any

Just curious: can you point us to the experimental evidence for this?
That is, evidence that shows that the effect you described outweighs
the congestion that might be avoided when successful pipelining, for
example, reduces the burstiness of non-pipelined TCP connections.
