I would love to know more about this. Running an AQM on the customer 
access that doesn't prioritize some specific service should be fine, ie it 
doesn't explicitly do something the *customer* doesn't benefit from.

Net neutrality should be about what the ISP does to benefit itself, not 
what is done on the customer access line (the scheduler per customer) that 
just looks at packet flow characteristics and isn't configured to 
prioritize any specific content (src/destination/port etc).
