First of all thanks for your recommended solution.

As this is some kind of solution, it is not really generic enough.
Nobody is prevented from setting his Hz value to 500 or any number coming
to his mind (i.e. when he wants to do something nasty with TBF of tc).

And if you actually look at x86-user-mode-linux, it is 20...
