Well the Westin POP and Netrality POPs model is the best in my opinion.
You take your bundle to one central location and do the x-connects there.
No need to pull single cables in the trays

Sure, but that's just a cost of doing business. There's not a line-item for cleaning the bathroom. 

Frankly, I don't know why there are trays full of hundreds of pairs instead of each cage having a patch panel and a 144 or some such trunk to another patch panel elsewhere. Seems like there's a lot of extra work being done.

You mean you're not supposed to let cables pile up indefinitely until they become an immovable tangled mass?
