Although I generally agree, how does one keep QoS out of the core for CBR
and jitter-sensitive applications?

Many here must continually explain on other lists that speed and volume
are totally different games.  "High-speed" access != "high volume for
below cost".  Ughh.  (If I wire my house with a 400A main, and insist
on running 30kW all the time, I'm going to get a biiig electric bill...)
