Hi Josef,

I think this would actually be (at least partially) under Policy Framework,
rather than Interfaces and CoS.  Take a look at
l/policy-framework-config8.html#1017021.  This table defines policy actions
including "then class class-name".  The actual definition of class-name
would be configured under class-of-service which *is* documented under
Interfaces and CoS.  *In addition* to this, you'd need to define a rewrite
rule (which is also documented under Interfaces and CoS) so that all packets
leaving via a particular output queue have the inet-precedence rewritten to
a particular value.  If you don't do this, even though the packet is placed
in a particular queue and receives particular treatment based upon the
community attached to that route at ingress, you won't give it the same (AF)
treatment across your network.
