I believe the idea here is to set TOS bits on the packets as they pass

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
the track.

Or is this refering to setting where the ToS packet goes ?? ie send a low priority ToS packet to a specified queue instead of filtering by port or ip.
