ETS and FCoE

I have heard some folks argue that ETS (Enhanced Transmission Selection) is NOT required to make FCoE work. I'm thinking specdifically of the case in which a CNA is connected to a DCB-capable Ethernet switch that is doing FIP Snooping, which is then uplinked to, say, a Cisco Nexus. The argument goes that the DCB-capable switch does NOT require ETS support to make this design work and be stable.

THOUGHTS?

Thanks
