This just popped up - BITAG, the Broadband Internet Technical Advisory  
Group, which
apparently has some Google backing. While it does not impact router  
configuration today, it sure does sound like they
want to in the future.

"For some time now, we’ve been advocating for the formation of a group  
of technical experts to put forward their best thinking on how to  
manage broadband networks in ways that still preserve and promote an  
open Internet. We’ve worked closely with Verizon and others in the  
Internet sector to further develop the concept, and we’re excited by  
today’s announcement that the Broadband Internet Technical Advisory  
Group , or BITAG, has begun the process of formally launching."
