Gaming: View My Broadband Usage doesn't show gaming stats

I main use the internet to either stream video or play on the Xbox 360. However, looking at my 'View My Broadband Usage' on the Member's Center, it doesn't show that any of my gaming traffic has been logged. Now seeing as most Xbox 360 games uses peer-to-peer systems to connect players for multiplayer modes, is the traffic being logged as peer-to-peer? This may sound like the most obvious question, which will just get an obvious answer of 'YES', but this would bring me to another question: If that is the case, would it be possible to change the traffic management priority for peer-to-peer to Titanium for members that use the Pro Add-on?

It shouldn't be getting picked up as P2P, even if that's the protocol used for the traffic we have signatures in place to specifically pick up XBOX Live, PSN etc traffic.
I'll point Dave in the direction of this thread.

If you can get Dave's assistance, that would be great!
So far, the stats since the 15th of May are as follows:
Web: 5%
Streaming: 80%
Peer-to-Peer: 12%
Other: 3%
Every other category: 0%
Gaming wise, I've only ever used the Xbox 360 and Halo 4 since 15th May.

You have a very high amount of usage and due to the volume it look's like it has overshadowed other traffic of a lot less significant amounts.
