QoS in Subinterface (Heirarchichal MQC vs Frame-Relay Traffic Shaping)

Level 1
Level 1

I notice that QoS can't be applied at subinterface level but there are two ways to do it in a frame-relay environment which I mention at the subject of this discussion.

Now my question is, does this do gives the same result?

Don't recall my ever using native frame-relay shaping.  I've used GTS with frame-relay and CBWFQ (MQC?) shaping.  GTS, if I remember correctly, supports WFQ implicitly, as does pre-HQF CBWFQ shaping in class-default.  GTS and, I believe, frame-relay shaping can also slow their rates when they receive BECNs although I also recall frame-relay shaping has more control over that than GTS.  All 3, I also believe, are very similar in how they meter out shaped packets.
