OK.

It is.
But those are a knobs each vendor may want to tweak,
So it'll be optimized with its internal device's implementation.

Tweaking the parameters, as well as the entire logic, is really an endless task.
Some logic works better for some scenarios, while falling behind on others.

How about leaving it for now, to be elaborated it in the future?
Maybe even can be a part of a scheme, to make the logic proprietary?
