I would be careful changing the default window size much, if your side sends too much before ACK's are required there can easily be a DOS of a small link. (or something like that) I've seen a T1 flooded by this before, it isn't pretty. Lots of packets hit the floor on the providers side.

Maximum window sizes and relying on hosts to be cool enough to say "gimmie more!" is much safer at the moment.
