Congestion control? With something like fairness queueing that keeps
bandwidth very stable at the fair share, you could conceivably get away
with a much shallower playback buffer in the application and stream at
something very close to real time, rather than using the chunk-based
retrieval of HAS.

However, that remark was mostly meant to be tongue-in-cheek... not sure
if there exists any really good congestion control algorithms for
real-time video.
