Depending on its definition of "lose contact with the Interent", that could
result in interesting failure modes - everything from hundreds of them bouncing
boxes if an upstream router has a BGP flap, to thousands of them DDoS'ing
the test point, and then bouncing boxes... It probably also interacts
badly with power monitoring hardware/software that labels too many power
"faults" in a period of time as a danger situation and holds off on bringing
boxes back online until stability is restored....
