> By curiosity, what is now responsible for the drops if not the congestion?

I think the point was not that observed drops are not caused by congestion,
but that congestion doesn't reliably cause drops. Correlation is not

There are also cases when drops are in fact caused by something other than
congestion, including faulty ADSL phone lines. Some local loop providers
have been known to explicitly consider several percent of packet loss due
to line conditions as "not a fault", to the consternation of the actual ISP
who was trying to provide a decent device over it.
