How QCI_X(where X = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,65,66,67,68,69,70) is selected by PCEF for CC-Request in Gx interface

How PCEF decide which QCI_X(where X = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,65,66,67,68,69,70) value need to be send to PCRF.
What is the significance of so many QOS-Class-Identifiers?
Even 3GPP 29.212 doesn't define any reason for classification between different QOS-Class-Identifiers.

QCI comes from MME in Create Session Request and PGW just forwards the same to PCRF. The information is usually downloaded from HSS.
For eg in case of IMS APN the QCI provided is 5 and for internet APN the QCI provided is 9.
QCI is an important aspect which helps to decide what kind of treatmenet shold be given to a packet.
Check QCI characteristics sepc 23.203.

Is it possible to use Credit-Control-Failure-Handling AVP in Gx interface. If so, how?

My query is when PCEF sends a CCRequest to PCRF and PCRF does not reply anything, so in that case will that be possible to use Credit-Control-Failure-Handling(CCFH) avp.

Does this behavior allowed as per 3GPP Standards or its upto the customization of the product. Any reference are highly appreciable.

Why do we require Gate Function ? I mean to say what is the need for this ? How Significant it is in Gx-Interface?

There is one use case here. PCEF has sent CCR (due to IP-CAN session modify) to PCRF and it again sends CCR to (due to another update) without receiving previous CCA. What should be the behavior ?
