From John Leslie:

  • In Section 3.1, the general-case description of policer (the

second paragraph) is describing mechanism better left to a
different I-D. OTOH, the fourth and fifth paragraph are an
example appropriate for this document (especially since it
is the case found in our Charter).

I think it's hard to understand the last paragraph without explaining at a high level how a congestion policer might work. I split the difference by making it more clear that the token bucket description is an example (i.e., "one way to implement a congestion policer" instead of "a congestion policer can be implemented").
