QoS Not an Issue Anymore in NGN? 

From the ITU-T Strategy and Policy Unit Newlog:
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has released a consultation document on the impact of transition to NGNs (also see press release). TRAI will be conducting open house discussions in Delhi and Bangalore on the NGN consultation paper as well as the recent consultation on convergence and competition.
In reading it diagonally, I came across an interesting comment regarding QoS:
QoS obligations on VoIP are becoming an exception i.e. many regulators are going for forbearance on this. The general view is that consumers are best judges of quality. Also, in the long-term, due to technological development in IP, the QOS is not going to remain an issue any more.
I fully agree, but if QoS is not an issue anymore for NGN, what is?
