Re: Poor analogy

If you want to go down that road (sorry...), how about the fastest motorways being toll roads (same price for everyone, and no one is excluded, but you have to pay it on top of the taxes if you wish to use high bandwidth, low latency pipes)? And if you pay a moderate fee in advance your packets get a special flag in the headers so that they don't sit in buffers at ingress or egress points and are switched using separate high priority queues with lower latency? Will that still be considered neutral?
