all traffic priorization has only real effects on saturated links.
on non-saturated ones they can be used for bandwidth shaping, and, 
IMHO the most important thing, make sure that in case of saturation 
the important stuff does not get delayed too much.
the tco ack priorization is mostky a ADSL thing. In theory it has 
effects elesewhere too, in practice it's mostly ADSL winning.
