Is message send time a problem? I mean, AFAIK freenet is able to recognize links with higher latency and use them as little as possible, thus reducing the outbound traffic over those links in favour of "local" (=not-so-limited) nodes. The other two possibilities, namely lower bandwidth for all and an add-on to fred, look uninviting: the first because it's just sub-optimal, the second because both it requires much work on fred (to implement the different bandwidth levels and to test them -- how many nodes would benefit from that?) and, for those who need the feature, does not significantly reduce the amount of configuration work (compared to a QOS system).
