It is also within one instance of the tool.  What if two of your remote 
users rsync at the same time?  Twenty?  What if someone has a need for 
low-latency communication at some "odd" hour during which much rsync-ing 
is occurring?

Operating at the level of the network or server provide proper 
allocation, and protection of non-rsync bandwidth, regardless of the 
number of rsync operations occurring at a given time.
