You'd be amazed. Doing a router upgrade isn't a simple quick 5 second
thing to do. That has to be planned, and if people see it as bugfix
they are more likely to upgrade. 

I used to keep 1 weeks worth of BGP4 logs for all of my employers
peers, now I can't keep 1 hours because of all the _crap_ I recieve 
from their routers.
