What about taking a page from the networking folks and specifying cpu
like a networking SLA?

Something like "group A is guaranteed X percent (or share) of the cpu,
but it is allowed to burst up to Y percent for Z milliseconds"

If a rule of this form was the first-class citizen, it would provide
both guarantees, limits, and flexible behaviour.
