Which has nothing at all to do with the asymmetry of the circuit at all.  Buffer bloat is an issue in and of itself.  I agree it can be an issue it just has nothing to do with the symmetry argument.  In my opinion, it is just a reaction to customers who never want to see a packet lost but not understanding what the cost of that is.
