Agreed, very much the only implementation I have come across FCoE installations for is Cisco UCS chassis. Personally, it's not something that I have seen regularly adopted as of yet outside proprietary hardware configurations such as UCS deployments.

Certainly also keen to understand as to any other use cases and deployments others have implemented using full-blown FCoE.

Kind regards,
