Thanks Brenton.  I've used tc lightly before, but this is probably 
better solved at the routing level rather than at shaping and 
prioritising the traffic.

I found some domain names, and found that Netcraft can enumerate 
subdomains.  However looking at some traffic flows, Microsoft at least 
uses Akamai for content distribution.  I can't imagine that I could 
successfully enumerate all those hosts.

I think the easiest way is using time of day.  If I set MS and iOS to 
only update overnight, and then set a cron job to change routes before 
and after, it might be enough.
