I am understanding that more as I am researching. I didn't realize there 
was a separation between 1000v and [5,7]K. I thought Nexus was Nexus. I 
should have known not to simplify it to that level. :) So I'm 
understanding more the differences as well as why I won't be expecting 
to find a good way to emulate the [5,7]K anytime soon. Thank you all for 
your comments.
