sub-6-figure buildouts 15 years ago, is most likely over 6 figures 
today. 7 figures probably won't get you much out of C and J today. The 
small to middle guys are at the mercy of the large guys applying 
pressure to vendors. In addition, there's a lot of finger crossing that 
those large guys deploy something similar to your setup so the vendor 
will support that layout.

I've had to re-engineer a lot of my networks for IPv6 support due to 
limited vendor support. You may not worry about my network (and I'll 
admit that I'm still worried about the core networks), but me and every 
other small to middle network has to worry about their own network. I 
know. I know. Forget us. All our users should just go to the big 
networks. :P
