Exactly my point.  Why should we adopt newer technology while using
configuration parameters that degrade performance?

1500 was designed for thick net.  It is absolutely stupid to use it for
GigE or higher speeds and I do mean absolutely idiotic.  It is going
backwards in performance.  No wonder there is still so much transport
using SONET.  Using Ethernet reduces your effective performance over
long distance paths.
