Also, if you rely on well-behaved peers getting their throughput cut

application might very well start to send redundant retransmissions in
the hope to get one out of several through your queue, and it will win
against a nice player.
But all this is already true when you've saturated your WAN
link so there's no harm in trying to shape the traffic anyway.
