It´s just a number. However, it´s the magnitude. Not the exact number.
In your example below you have about
If we again consider one outstanding segment with 12000 bit we have the
following rates (approximately)
It´s not the question whether this is optimal. It´s the question: Does
this happen in a relevant number of cases?
Particularly in downloads from mobile devices which quite often do not
offer larger bandwidth.
So to your question why TCP should tune itself to only one outstanding
segment: The reason could be the limited bandwidth the node, e.g. a
mobile node, can handle.
