This memo provides guidance to TCP implementers that is intended to
help improve connection convergence to steady-state operation without

description of sharing TCP state, as typically represented in TCP
Control Blocks, among similar concurrent or consecutive connections.

This document is a product of the TCP Maintenance and Minor Extensions Working Group of the IETF.
