I recently read a tariff filing by SWBT that did something similar.  I'd
have to dig up the filing for the exact wording, but it was something to
the effect of "we're just doing this because we're nice, not because we
think it applies."  Yeah, right.

Is this "we don't agree with the PUC, but we're just doing it because
we're so nice" thing something that SBC does now?
