Put another way, the set of challenges facing the enterprise/production
operator (the people who use that network to facilitate the delivery of
a product ... either on the transmitting or receiving end of that
delivery) is quite different from the set of challenges that face a pure
network operator.  And what seems so easy for one may not be so easy for
the other.

Dual stacking network gear is less of a problem than dual stacking
hundreds or thousands of servers, special purpose appliances, software,
etc. of different vendors, ages, and complexity.
