Nick,

That very small upside for an extreme downside.  Trying to hire someone to
work on your system with Euro channelization, not to mention buying
amplifiers and passives is a huge PITA.  I have customers in Europe who
decided to do US DOCSIS and they universally wish they had used the local
"flavor".
