Of course. But even ISPs are asking or "cubic" on Linux servers they
deploy. So they clearly not concerned what it does to their networks.

The reality is that their a lots more Linux systems than NetBSD systems.
Networks haven't broken because the Linux systems use Cubic or RFC 6926.
But end user performance has improved a lot because of these changes.
And I think NetBSD should offer those performance improvements as well.
