This memo analyzes provider-to-provider Quality of Service (QoS)
agreements suitable for a global QoS-enabled Internet. It defines
terminology relevant to inter-domain QoS models. It proposes a new
concept denoted by Meta-QoS-Class (MQC). This concept could
potentially drive and federate the way QoS inter-domain relationships
are built between providers. It opens up new perspectives for a QoS-
enabled Internet that retains, as much as possible, the openness of
the existing best-effort Internet. This memo provides information for
the Internet community.
