Ah, that is easy, in your home-router that is you :); no one else knows how much you value uninterrupted VoIP sessions. Now as always this is not perfect as you can not fully control the marking on the downlink, but in that case I still think it makes sense to mark on your router and shape the downlink, while not as good as the uplink shaping and marking it still improves things noticeably.
