mPlane, RITE paper on ECN cited in Apple announcement

Apple has announced at WWDC 2015 (announcement around 34:30 here) that it is turning on ECN by default for client applications in the current developer builds of the next versions of Mac OS X and iOS. In doing so, it cited "Enabling Internet-Wide Deployment of Explicit Congestion Notification", a PAM 2015 paper that was joint work between the FP7 mPlane and RITE projects, on the current state of ECN deployment in the Internet, and the connectivity risk of using client-side defaults to drive further deployment.
