All ISPs aren't doing this. I've worked for at least two who has VoIP 
services without it. Skype has no such requirement.

No, it's not a MUST. It's nice to have and increases network tolerance, 
but I've worked for ISPs that used overprovisioning and cheap equipment 
that just got the job done, and this was cheaper than buying the more 
expensive equipment that had a lot of intelligence in it.

Using QoS is ONE way of doing it, it's not the only one.
