Currently thinking about it. I was also waiting Tom Herbert BQL patches.
Several people are interested, and John Fastabend told me he plans to :
(1) rcu'ify classifiers/actions as needed
(2) add flag to drop qdisc lock on simple or hw qdiscs
(3) mq and mqprio call root qdisc and run a pass over classifiers
actions possibly resetting queue_mapping.
