Suppose a network chooses to report present capacity on its link as cost 
to its peers, who use it to attempt to load balance traffic. 

Is there any literature that quantifies this control loop problem?

Huitema's book (Routing in the Internet) has some words on it, not 
analysis and my attempts at web search (googling) were unsuccessful.
