Up-thread, there was mention of patches related to wifi.  Aggregation is precisely one of the things that would address.  I should note that the brief description I gave glossed over a lot of fine details of BBR's implementation, which include careful filtering and conditioning of the data it gathers about the network path.

I'm not altogether a fan of such complexity.
