The primary shortcoming I see with Aponet's solution is the lack of prioritization or limitation by port number or protocol. Aponet assures me they are currently working on a new release that includes such functionality. In the interest of full disclosure, I did hang out at Aponet's Spring ISPCon booth and helped them (for free) with a technical presentation. Other than that, I'm just one of their customers.
