how is that though? you COULD do something odd like say: "Anything to
zaid-ali's netblocks is preferred in queues over things to
jolymacfie's netblocks. that wouldn't require any DPI at all, just a
traffic classification engine on/near the endpoint, say like on the
DocSIS modem, or on the handset itself... many handsets are unix-ish
things with some ability to do 'firewall' things, certainly they could
mark packets outbound, certainly at peering points a network could
classify in simple ways and mark packets properly there as well.

nothing required DPI, unless you want to delve into: "That is not ssh
on port 22"

port 443 is the new port 80! woot!
