	Not sure, RTT will make a lot of people nervous about this being basically a run-time constant while actual RTTs of the flows range from a few ms to several 100s. To not confuse these people we would need something like “typical average/median RTT” or “longest realistic RTT” or even “center of realistic RTT range” that conveys that this is more about order of magnitude than any real RTT. It could also be that people in general are much better about this and I just got a specific subset in the crowd I try to help getting sqm-scripts up and running ;)

Best Regards
