I think you made a good point but I even would go a step further. Consider
this: A downloads a file from D thus using D-b-A (with 50% packet loss). But
each packet has to be acknowledged and every second acknowledgement is also
lost (via A-c-D) . That is why D will resend every second packet and the
throughput will suffer even more.
I think we should find a solution here but up to now I don't have a clue how
to do it.
