The past is exclusively speed-focused -- the future will be speed + working latency + reliability/resiliency + consistency of QoE + security/protection + WiFi LAN quality.

I'd settle for the 100Mbit era having sub 25ms working latency. Which
we've been achieving in fq_codel, cake, and even pie, for 10 years.

I will file on this nprm, some variant of

But I keep hoping more will sign on board. Perhaps finding a lawyer to
proof it. And I'm not sure what hook to use on this nprm out of my
existing evolving document without tieing myself to a chair with a
variety of calming drugs handy.

I'm an engineer, dang it, not a politician!
