Some enterprises get MPLS L3 VPN service from their providers, and
need boxes that can route packets to it and speak BGP to inject
their routes.  They are not, per se, connected to the Internet, and
thus won't be "zorched", at least in the sense you are using it.

Also, many enterprises get DS-3, Cable Modem, or 100M Ethernet
handoffs, and won't ever get a faster "zorch" due to link speed.
