This is quite a surreal comment.
"classifying flows according to application requirements and willingness to pay for grades of service" [and then meeting those requirements and providing those grades] is pretty much a picture-perfect definition of Network Quality of Service, which I think many people would argue is one of the most-discussed issues of all time within the field.
As a quick experiment, googling <network "quality of service"> produces about 10,700,000 results (<network QoS> produces 18,000,000), while <network "congestion control"> produces 1,070,000.
