WAN Failover Firewall Rules

We would like to see the ability to create firewall rules that take over if the primary WAN connection fails over to a secondary WAN connection. This would be useful for businesses like ours who has a nice primary connection but a significantly smaller backup connection. For example we let the employees stream media during normal operations however with many streaming if it fails over to the backup WAN connection it causes a huge bottleneck for us.

    Would be nice to specify new QoS rules (new paradigms to manage QoS Policy), when backup WAN connection take the place of main WAN connection.
    An approach could be:
    When I create a QoS Policy I can specify same parameters (with different values) for every Link.
