I don't know about DaveM's work, but real routers offer differing QoS policies per class-of-traffic queue (eg, a limited queue length with tail drop for a class with voice traffic, a long queue with RED drop for classes with TCP traffic). Since Linux implements scheduling and queue policies using qdiscs, a qdisc per queue would make sense.
