	  CCID 2, TCP-like Congestion Control, denotes Additive Increase,
	  Multiplicative Decrease (AIMD) congestion control with behavior
	  modelled directly on TCP, including congestion window, slow start,
	  timeouts, and so forth [RFC 2581].  CCID 2 achieves maximum
	  bandwidth over the long term, consistent with the use of end-to-end
	  congestion control, but halves its congestion window in response to
	  each congestion event.  This leads to the abrupt rate changes
	  typical of TCP.  Applications should use CCID 2 if they prefer
	  maximum bandwidth utilization to steadiness of rate.  This is often
	  the case for applications that are not playing their data directly
	  to the user.  For example, a hypothetical application that
	  transferred files over DCCP, using application-level retransmissions
	  for lost packets, would prefer CCID 2 to CCID 3.  On-line games may
	  also prefer CCID 2.

	  CCID 2 is further described in:

	---help---
	  CCID 3 denotes TCP-Friendly Rate Control (TFRC), an equation-based
	  rate-controlled congestion control mechanism.  TFRC is designed to
	  be reasonably fair when competing for bandwidth with TCP-like flows,
	  where a flow is "reasonably fair" if its sending rate is generally
	  within a factor of two of the sending rate of a TCP flow under the
	  same conditions.  However, TFRC has a much lower variation of
	  throughput over time compared with TCP, which makes CCID 3 more
	  suitable than CCID 2 for applications such streaming media where a
	  relatively smooth sending rate is of importance.
