[e2e] current congestion control specs?

In response to your requests:
(1) RFC 2001 has been obsoleted by RFC 2581 (which, from what I
understand, is geared more towards an implementor's POV)
(2) SACK is a fairly good loss recovery scheme, and it's implementation is
growing [See M. Allman, "A Web Server's View of the Transport Layer", ACM
Computer Communication Review, 30(5), October 2000] so it would be good to
include it in any implementation of a network stack. SACK is defined in
RFC 2018 and extended in RFC 2883.
(3) I have not read RFC 2914 yet either, so I cannot provide feedback on
that, but perhaps someone else can?
Hope this helps,
