The point of PHB LE is so that the customer access shaper can background 
the customer LE traffic. It's not intended to be used by ISPs on their 
core links, it's intended for use on the customer access port.

If the customer buys 10 megabit/s Internet access then it's beneficial for 
the customer if the software update download doesn't affect the netflix 
stream and the kids' gameplay. Thus why we're trying to differentiate 
between BE and LE. FQ or CAKE can solve the gameplay, but it can't make 
the netflix stream get 90% of the rest of the capacity and give 5% to the 
software download. LE marking the software download traffic can do that.
