This document specifies an update to the round-trip time (RTT)
estimation algorithm used for TFRC (TCP-Friendly Rate Control)
congestion control by the Datagram Congestion Control Protocol
(DCCP).  It updates specifications for the CCID-3 and CCID-4
Congestion Control IDs of DCCP.

The update addresses parameter-estimation problems occurring with
TFRC-based DCCP congestion control.  It uses a recommendation made in
the original TFRC specification to avoid the inherent problems of
receiver-based RTT sampling, by utilising higher-accuracy RTT samples
already available at the sender.

It is integrated into the feature set of DCCP as an end-to-end
negotiable extension.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]
