I was in a data center for a large bank here in Pittsburgh a few years 
ago, and they definitely went the extra mile to keep their cable plant 
neatly organized and properly dressed, and they continued to maintain that 
after the building was turned up.

That's the real test.  I've seen lots of data centers and colo facilities 
that looked great for the grand opening and started turning into rat's 
nests as the move/add/change tickets started coming in :(
