How does a connection-splitting PEP (i.e. what you referred to above)
decide how much data to allow in from the fixed/fast side? Does it
just use a static buffer, or does it keep an eye on how much the
mobile/slow side's TCP stack has ACKed? If the latter, then that's an
example of where this information would be useful.
