This document updates the specification of CUBIC to include algorithmic
improvements based on implementations and recent academic work. It also moves
the specification to the Standards Track, obsoleting RFC 8312. The document
also requires updating RFC 5681, to allow for CUBIC's occasionally faster ramp
up sending behavior.

The errata proposed in RFC 8312 was rejected, thus, not included in this new

I only have minor nits for this document.

Major issues: None

Minor issues: None

Nits/editorial comments:

* Perhaps it would be nice to add a subsection in Section I, to explain the

Thanks for this document,
