I believe the idea here is to set TOS bits on the packets as they pass
through the OpenBSD gateway, so *other* routers in the path can act
accordingly, using their own queues and priorities.
The two are not necessarily mutually exclusive. I tend to put a bit more
faith in the things I can control, on my own gear. Setting TOS values is
useful, but only to the extent they are actually honored further down
