[Bug 8459] "For instance, a user agent might wait 500ms or 512 bytes, whichever came first." -- IMO this is a bad example, over a satellite link the typical RTT might be 600-1500ms. Or is the assumption that the counting starts after the first packet of data is rece

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Certainly there are environments where 500ms is excessively short
(satellite links aren't the half of it; consider mobile phone networks!). There
