> Is this heresy?

yes. it's called "ackno" because it's acknowledging something that's
received.

an implementation is free to implement whatever algorithms it finds useful
providing that its external behavior matches the specification.

what this means is that you're free to send SEQs asynchronously, but when
you send them, ackno must accurately reflect what you've received. you can
just as easily get the effect you seek by playing with the size (parameter
3) instead of the ackno (parameter 2).
