	RFCs form Internet guidelines, notes, and standards.  They
	are not marketing advantages, brochure fillers, reasons,
	pressure-points, or massage techniques.

	You've shown usual lack of understanding of bandwidth
	usage, conservation, and reservation, despite many comments
	from Michael and others.

	RFCs don't pressure developers or users, and has nothing to do
	with your seriously messed-up religious viewpoints on "retail
	networks" or whatever else you were typing while your prozac
	wore off.

	Please don't make it any worse by	
	calling for an RFC ''so marketing can force'' some solution
	you don't understand to a problem you can't define on a network
	you don't run or ever will grok.
