[e2e] Congestion control as a hot topic in IETF

Looks like quite some moving target to me.

I only repeat my three goals - because these are not invented by me but 
(nearly word by word) from the papers by Van Jacobson and Raj Jain.

Hence, the famous quote by Mark Twain comes to my mind: "//Having lost 
sight of our goals, we redouble our efforts"

I think, the main purpose of the discussion should be to clearly 
identify what we want to achieve at all. From what I read in the list 
and in some PM, I doubt that we have a congruent understanding of our goals.
