[deleted, lots of good ideas and suggestions. I agree with essentially all
of it]

  Another area which needs improvement is making L2
	switches similarly aware of community TOS in IP packets.

---

Why would an L2 switch need or even want to be aware of TOS? Wouldn't this
be a Class 3/4..7 issue? If community TOS is supported, those guys that
would benefit from awareness of it in their internal network would address
this at a higher level switch I'd think.

I took your suggestion as a "best effort" below "normal" effort for
"community" TOS. I could be mistaken.
