[ sorry for preaching.  i know you are a fellow choir member ]

for me it separates in to two things

  o what i do with my routers today.  as you know, i have been pushing
    the irr and programmatic configuration since the mid '90s.  that is
    your step 1.

    we have known how to do this for a decade.  we don't need a bunch of
    talk.  we need to shut up and hack.

  o what i do with my time.  i don't have enough time to spend on both
    hacks and rigor, so i concentrate on the design and implementation
    of long-term formal and rigorous solutions, to which you allude in
    step 2.
