The only issue with this is that the Linux box is not acting as a router, but as the egress devices.  I'm trying to

with the development team to use DSCP values to tag the traffic and then act accordingly on the ingress router.  I 
appreciate all the ideas presented so far.

You could also have a look at linux namespaces if you want to manage
routing tables per process. Especially the new setns syscall could be
handy: <https://lwn.net/Articles/407495/>
