What do you mean by "DSCP are often enabled by default
for some applications, such as video"? Would those
routers can recognize video traffic and set
approprate DSCP to video packets? Considering a
network carrying IPTV and normal traffic, could that
be possible for each node to allocate/divide bandwidth
to each class on each hop while balancing requirement
between IPTV traffic and normal internet traffic?

do you mean WRED is enabled in those default queueing
