An interesting thread.....

I'd say if you had, instead of a C13 on one end, a C15 so that it would be a tad more universal (Cisco 7507 and 12012 power supplies, for instance, are C16 and not C14 inlets), since the C15 will mate to a C14 but a C13 won't mate to a C16.  As I'm still running some old kit (have a 7507 still in production in an internal role, and just removed a 12012) I have run into that.

And I'll have to be one of those who has no equipment needing an L6-15; plenty of L5-20's, L5-30's, L6-20's, L6-30's, and a few L21-30's but no 15 amp locking NEMA receptacles to be found.  Is an L6-15R standard on some PDU's or something, while others are C14 and C20 (such as EMC's PDU's)?
