It may be possible for the features of qos to help limit the
extent of the
attack, but with no predictability of where the attack
sources or attack
destinations are, you'd either need to apply qos when the
attack occurs
(reactive), or deploy it EVERYWHERE, on ALL provider's
networks (intensely
proactive). I doubt that anyone has the time or effort to
deploy worldwide
qos in order to stop random (and small, compared to overall
traffic) dos

This WAS the idea, thanks for pointing out the weakness. Basically, yet
another means to filter. But, too much work to implement. According to this,
it wouldn't scale.
