i'm indifferent to the "public-can't" rational as munis appear to do
an adequate job of water and power delivery-to-the-curb, in eugene,
palo alto, san francisco, ... and the capacity of fiber obsoletes the
early telephone and telegraph notion of poll space contention, a basis
for an earlier "natural monopoly" theory.

i'm also indifferent to the "leo-in-the-noc" rational as the
separation is presently somewhat fictive and overzealous prosecutions
are the norm.
