That's what I do, works fine.

Not only that, but the rate-limiting on the input interface will likely force the customer to do some QOS at their end too; the discrepancy between what the customer's router thinks the bandwidth is and what it really is will cause packet loss. I like the solution of the sending interface to queue the egress traffic at whatever speed is available better.
