Still, I believe traffic shaping 'in the opposite direction' has limited usefulness, because you cannot control/shape the traffic all the way back to its origin. You're likely to drop packets, forcing retransmits and basically wasting downstream bandwidth (and the resources of peers sending you traffic).
