Sean, I agree on "industry agreed practice", yet simply can not understand
why colos that have lacking physical security are our concerns. Obviously
they need professional security help.

As most of them don't take care of data security, which us bunch actually
understand, how can we get them to care about physical security?

It's beyond our scope, but I'm game on helping this happen if you feel it
would make a difference.
