At 100 Mbit, one full-size Ethernet frame is 120us.  This means that
if you want your VoIP traffic to have less than 30ms delay, you should
in principle reach your deadline as long as you have fewer than 250
congestion-limited flows at a given time.

For throughput-sharing reasons, perhaps.  For latency reasons, hopefully not.
