If it were up to me, I would use EF for realtime position/command updates and voice comms, CS0 for everything non-time-critical (like matchmaking, garage, shop), and CS1 for downloading patches.

Reason is, EF is the only DSCP I can count on being interpreted as "latency sensitive" rather than "for video streaming".
