Quality of service as in:

Block count starts when transaction is first seen. Miners can set X, Y, Z. 

Market develops when miners start setting different values and adding more transactions to blocks as opposed to other miners with higher settings. 

It basically comes down to the miners themselves if they want a healthy fee market. If they stick to their guns, their influence on the fees will be proportional to their hashing power.
