TCP congestion control and large router buffers

I wonder why this hasn't made the rounds here. From what I see, a change
in this part (e.g. lower buffers in customer routers, or a change (yet
another) to the congestion control algorithms) would do miracles for
end-user perceived performance and should help in some way with the net
neutrality dispute.

I also understand that a lot of the people here operate routers which
are a bit far from the end-users and don't have a lot to do with this
issue, but the rest should have something to do with
choosing/configuring these end-user devices, so this should be relevant.
