Which makes sense if the end-to-end path is less than 50ms re: seeing
hitless failovers on the IP routers.

If the end-to-end path is crossing continents, a local failure which is
repaired within 50ms will still cause a longer/noticeable outage for the
IP routers connected at either end of said circuit.
