As you surely know, so far every attempt to achieve a consensus has failed
in a pretty miserable way.
This mostly because "QoS" can be interpreted in a lot of different ways,
both from the conceptual and practical perspective.
It is important in my opinion to clearly define the goals first. For
instance a simple extensions for bandwidth limiting could be a reasonable
target for the Liberty release.
Moving things such as ECN into "future works" is the right thing to do in
my opinion. Attempting to define a flexible framework that can deal with
advanced QoS policies specification is a laudable effort, but I am a bit
skeptical about its feasibility.

"Simple" in my mind is even more extreme then what you're proposing here...
I'd start with bare APIs for specifying bandwidth limiting, and then phase
them out once this "framework" is in place.
Also note that this kind of design bears some overlap with the flavor
framework which is probably going to be another goal for Liberty.
Morever, consider using "common" tools such as the specs repo to share and
discuss design documents.

I think is a good idea as well. I was thinking that perhaps it might be a
good idea to grab a design summit session as well (surely not a fishbowl
one as they're totally unfit for this purpose).
However, it might be good to achieve some sort of consensus before the
summit, as as we know fairly well now the summit is probably the worst
place where consensus can be achieved!
