So instead of outside information being visible by way of the TOS field
it's now visible by way of different UDP ports we're talking to.

I don't see any advantage here.

In fact I don't see much advantage of passing TOS out in the first
place. Either you have a reliable transit network with short queues, or
you don't. In the former case TOS is useless. In the latter case you
have other problems which a TOS field cannot fix anyway. (OK, this is a
bit more black+white than the Real World, but …)
