    It isnt automatic. CBQ is a policy driven system. You get to set policy
    according to local needs. Thats one of the problems you need to then
    talk to the other end to pass policy (and also potentially along paths
    packets are taking).

    If you control both directions from a routing point then CBQ can
    be a huge help as can other flow control schemes like RED (random
    early drop - a simple scheme that punishes the highest bandwidth
    users when congestion is occuring)
