Gaming traffic managment changes

Steam / GoG both have been taken off gold/titanium priority, so what is happening to these game distribution apps and other games?  Have we now got to test every game again to make sure its on the correct priority or is this the start of a change.

I think a large game download doesn't really need to have a high priority. In fact it would make more sense if it has a lower priority.
Doesn't Plusnet still aim for even the lower priority traffic to run at your line speed, and there are no rate limits? If that's the case, I don't think there should be any problem here.
