Or should IP backbones have methods to predictably control which IP applications receive the remaining IP bandwidth? Similar to the telephone network special information tone -- All Circuits are Busy. Maybe we've found a new use for ICMP Source Quench.
Source Quench wouldn't be my favored solution here. What I might suggest is taking TCP SYN and SCTP INIT (or new sessions if they are encrypted or UDP) and put them into a lower priority/rate queue. Delaying the start of new work would have a pretty strong effect on the congestive collapse of the existing work, I should think.
