Active Queue Management and Packet Scheduling
Note: This ballot was opened for revision 00-03 and is now closed.
Ballot question: "Do we approve of this charter?"
I'm sure it is an English/American thing, but "When these buffers fill" means to me "When these buffers have become full" and I don't think you are talking about buffer depletion. So maybe you should say "When a large number of packets are queued." A similar language issue arises in... (1) minimize standing queues, helping to reduce delay for interactive applications ...where I think it is the queue *length* (measured in packets or bytes?) that you want to minimise, not the number of queues.
I assume "potentially policing of flows" is about throttling users/abusers, but I think that it does require significant attention not just from the wg but also from the wider community. I'm loathe to add in the "we'll coordinate with x, y, and z wgs" here because I think noting it here is enough and because I trust sponsoring AD to get 'er done!
When these buffers fill, interactive applications and other traffic can be severely impacted or completely broken, due to high and potentially oscillating delays. I think you mean "When these buffers start to fill" Of course when they actually fill you get packet drop which introduces a different class of error than that induced by late packets.
