SDN is a poor alternative for those who can't construct a
network with fully automated QoS guarantee.

Even with SDN, QoS guarantee implies QoS routing requiring
dedicated routing table entry for each flow, which will not
shrink but bloat routing tables regardless of whether you
call it FIB or not.
