Hi Chris, 

The explanation makes sense. 

I think that the term "bursty" traffic confuses me and others. 

Token bucket sounds more "bursty" to me as the output varies - sometimes a few frames are sent, sometimes many 
frames are sent at once if there are sufficient tokens to do so. 

Leaky bucket on the other hand sounds more "consistent/stable" to me.
