It is generally a good thing, and that's why Linux CBQ is work-conserving. 
But sometimes it's not what people expect (and that's why the question "why 
doesn't the keyword bounded work in cbr?" is raised: it works, but works 
differently of what one would expect).
Sometimes we really need shaping, so non-work-conserving qdiscs like TBF are 
also needed.
