The consumer already has this option on many SOHO firewalls.  No action by ISPs is required.  But this is totally irrelevant to the idea of Net Neutrality.

Carrier circuits should never be 'full', unless your definition of 'full' is 50-70%, IMHO.  100% full is a failure of engineering, business planning, and monitoring.  Priority shouldn't be required.
