 you drop updates, which would lead to inconsistent views on the two sides of the session.

Views are inconsistent by design - there is no state synchronization.  All a sender knows is that he sent the updates, 
not what (if anything) was done with them by the receiver.

What if a legitimate update was among the large burst?

Presumably, soft-reset would be initiated after the throttling.

But per previous email, if any sort of throttling is to be done at all, it's probably best that it is done by the 
sender.
