I think it is entirely reasonable to discus. End-users of the Internet
indirectly pay operators' salaries, so it is very wise for operators to
remember to "think like the customer" (or, in the least, remember that
if operators make the Internet too hard to use, they'll likely be the
ones called around to their non-technical relatives' place to "fix my
broken Internet").
