And this is the requirement which should be placed in RFPs, along with other specific requirements for ACL handling, flow telemetry functionality, uRPF, et. al.

If folks want to influence vendors to do the Right Thing, they have to expend the time and effort to quantify and qualify said Right Thing(s), and then put it into RFP requirements.  Otherwise, complaining post-procurement isn't generally going to accomplish much.
