Just one though regarding queue size:
IMHO, it's probably rare to go from 1Gbps down to 64kbps. I would think
that the link from the provider side to the home user side will go
though consecutive steps of decreasing bottleneck bandwidth. Even if
some intermediate links have higher capacity again, that should in
effect alleviate the burst load on the ultimate bottleneck queue
somewhat. In such a scenario, you may get away with only 10 packets
queue depth at each step, if at least 4 consecutive smaller bottlenecks
are on the path from the sender to the receiver...
Also, Lars seems to do some investigation on home gateways:

Perhaps this team could provide some realistic ranges of the queue
depths (down- and upstream) for very small bottleneck pipes too?
