If your complete control is % based then I would assume its a % of a %.
Simple enough.

If its bandwidth based then simply don't allow a child to consume more
bandwidth than its parent, also simple.

If your layman isn't capable of grokking that, he should stay the f*ck
away from it.

I'm really thinking that if we stick with the full hierarchical thing we
should mandate all controllers be fully hierarchical. And yes that
sucks, but so be it.

The scheduler thing tries to be completely hierarchical and yes it will
run into the ground if you push it hard enough simply because we're
hitting the limits of fixed point arithmetic, fractions can only go so
far, so the deeper you nest the crappier things get -- not that any
userspace cares about this.
