We also suggested to introduce a mechanism for allowing rate control
in order to privilege messaging traffic:
- throttling the c2s connection delays also chat messages (and the
delay can be very high since TCP buffers are large)
- to the serve should be able to send a <rate max="n"/> within message
to the client asking to decrease rate to max n message per second; in
this way the client can sort outgoing messages per priority and send
in advance urgent chat messages
- the TCP socket is throttled only if the client doesn't comply
