Yes, of course. I am not a datacenter guy so this is not a problem I face, 
because most of packets in my environment travel tens or hundreds of 

So in datacenter one wants to start marking ECN on packets very soon into 
buffer depth, hoping sender will get feedback and throttle back the speed 
way before one gets taildrops?
