I read the document. I got a bit lost in the details.
The document appears to be well-written.

in section 2,
  This document assumes that the reader is familiar with the terms
   SENDER MAXIMUM SEGMENT SIZE (SMSS), CONGESTION WINDOW (cwnd), and
   FLIGHT SIZE (FlightSize) defined in [RFC5681].  FLIGHT SIZE is
   defined as in [RFC5681] as follows:
If you assume the reader is familiar with the FLIGHT SIZE definition, why
repeat it here? If you repeat the defintion of  flight size here, why not SMSS
and CWND as well?

It would have been good to have a tsvdir review of this document.
