Just meant it as a parallel operational example. Both situations, while legally
distinct, present the same operational issues.
Purposely breaking things - and then being required to keep the breakage secret -
is going to mess up a whole lot of things. (How does Chinese operators handle this?)
Additionally the snooping is an issue, though I can't imagine anyone depends on
an IX for maintaining secrecy at a contract level :/ Today's realities.
