His full name is "Disgraced Former Worldcom CEO Benie Ebbers" (one 
word).  He's generally considered to be the leading authority on 
corruption based loss in networks.

His techniques can be applied to the situation under discussion by using 
corruption based packet synthesis to improve overall throughput by 
generating plausible looking packets in response to upstream loss. 
Naturally,  this technique can't be used for all traffic, as it becomes 
harder to tell what's really plausible.

 Fortunately existing approaches can provide  for the selective control 
and regulation of  even the highest levels of  corruption ;  the  
Federal Elections Commission, or FEC, model has proven itself reliable 
in this environment.
