I don't think so. They may try different target markets, but the cost
savings of merging the internet networks is very big. Yes it is a good
idea to make MFS and UUNet separate divisions, because they work better
that way. I think you will see MFS + Brooks as one unit and UUNet + ANS +
internetMCI as one unit. 

P.S. In that last messages I said that internetMCI was using Stratacom,
they are actually using Fore.
