Why are these considered (by Ryan) low values? Does low have a
negative connotation here?
ARP timeout should be lower than MAC timeout, and MAC timeout usually
is 300 seconds. Anything above 300seconds is probably poor BCP for
default value, as defaults should interoperate in a somewhat sane
Of course operators are free to configure very high ARP timeout, as
long as they also remember to equally configure higher MAC timeout.
