Re: the real problem

The solution as you describe it is essentially equivalent to classifying ISPs as common carriers, which I think is an excellent idea if politically difficult. I second your comment that packets of different types (video vs SMTP, for example) should and must be treated differently for effective network management -- which is quite unlike the practice of lagging Netflix' video streams to give an advantage to your own streaming service (now who could I possibly be referring to??)
