DCN aside, how precisely does one define 'internal network' in, say, the context of the production network of a broadband access SP, or hosting/colocation/VPS/IaaS SP?

Surely you aren't advocating wedging stateful firewalls into broadband access networks or in front of servers, with all the DoS chokepoint breakage that implies?

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid, with millions
of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural integrity, but
just done by brute force and thousands of slaves.
