O.k., so that's the case for small queues: small queuing latencies and
endpoints, which back off intelligently.
But what's the reason for doing only a small number of retransmissions
locally on a lossy channel?
One point, you mentioned, is that an application may want to pause and
wait for better channel conditions (you talked about load conditions,
but this is comparable).
Basically, my question is to which extent recovery on lossy links should
be done locally and to which extent recovery should be left to the end
