It is possible to maintain the inner vlan mapping or to change the mapping on the outer tag.

Read the section " QOS AND COS MUTATION WITH 802.1Q TUNNELING" in the following link....

It all depends on the hardware.

For example 3750 Metro support copying inner CoS value to the outer tag. It is also supported by 4500s with SUPV-10GE.

Also this functionality is possible with ES20 cards in 7600.

Overall there is not much hardware that support it. The functionality you are looking for is called "ntelligent IEEE 802.1Q tunneling QoS"
