Rationale for revision
The verbal description states “contains the most recent instant of time”, this is incorrect looking at the pseudo-code of section 126.96.36.199 ProcessFrame(frame), where BucketEmptyTime can clearly be in the future, assuming ProcessFrame(frame), is basically called at or very soon after arrivalTime.
Change text to: “A state variable that contains the nearest instant of time, in seconds at which the token bucket of the ATS scheduler instance is empty.”
Impact on existing networks
Make the description match the pseudo-code to avoid confusion.
