And to make matters more confusing, not all service providers
agree on what level of service should be provided. I think the
NANOG is the perfect place to discuss what we think should be the
minimum acceptable service level, as well as what can be expected
in terms of inter-provider help and cooperation. Sean's comments
are, in my opinion, useful as a basis for discussion, and completely
appropriate. I think we all need to discuss our expectations in
an open forum. We may never agree, but at least we can disagree
