I'll take my imagination boat from the dry docks and sail to 2035. Lot
of people still run Jericho ANET, it is the new CAT6500 PFC3. DFZ
won't fit it anymore without redundant-specifics.
Are we at all concerned that someone in the DFZ advertises a minimum

protect from it, if we are not, why are we not?
