I am likely out of date about Windows Update, but there's many other 
programs that do background downloads or uploads that don't implement 
LEDBAT or similar protection. The current AQM recommendation draft in the 
IETF will make things worse, by not drawing attention to the fact that 
implementing AQM without implementing a low priority traffic class (such as 
DSCP 8 - CS1) will prevent solutions like LEDBAT from working, or there 
being any alternative. Would appreciate support on the AQM list in the 
importance of this.
