To be clear - the purpose of this policy is to ensure that people who
deploy appliances use them in the best way possible for their network.
 Anything less than the minimum amount of traffic and the appliance uses
more bandwidth to fill than serve and you end up in a race of diminishing
returns.  We're always happy to try to find the best solution for any
network, even those too small for an OCA.
