Customers and operators both have very little idea what they are
doing. Most people have no idea what the policer are accounting for.
And everything still works, without anyone understanding what they are
doing. So mostly it's not a problem if you're doing L1, L2 or L3.

Of course your 100M physical interface is limited to L1 rate of 100M.
If you provision that as VLAN of 100M service, should you sell now L1,
L2 or L3 of 100M? What are. you doing? (No you you, passive you, you
are not representative, nanog is not representative, the passive you
doesn't know which they are selling, and which they are selling
changes with hardware upgrades, and they don't know it).
