Sounds like a 10 terabyte packet buffer per interface in the router to
me.  Sure will be spiffy to have a nice fine granularity of 50 megs
per packet for TCP backoff - handy thing that ever since rfc1323 you
can have 32-bit window sizes, or were these guys proposing dispensing
with the window altogether since 99.9999% of the time the data you
have to send will be under 50 megs?  I'll channel Randy for a moment
and encourage my competitors to do this...  on their *own* networks,
