I've seen this and similar advice for other problems, and have disabled ecn for several systems with networking ailments myself. Would it be better to have some of these off by default rather than have multiple versions of these problems appear into the future? Is there some common case where these not only work but provide a significant benefit so great it justifies being the default?
