Sebastian as ever picks up on the exact source of my confusion/point.
If 'target=interval/16' is the new mantra then the defaults built in to
cake qdisc should be changed, otherwise we have the current situation
which is: Default Interval=100ms, target=5ms. If I specify rtt 100ms
via the joys of tc, then I have: Interval=100ms, target=6.2ms. If I
specify a target keyword such as 'internet' which also has an interval=
100ms, then target become 5ms again. Somewhat inconsistent.
