there was more to it than that.  The grammar was too complicated to 
easily describe common policies and too limited to describe complex 
policies.  The structure was difficult to extend when the routing became 
more complicated (e.g. mpls, route servers, ipv6, complex ibgp, etc). 
The tooling was too complicated for anyone to understand properly how it 
worked and too early to benefit from later additions, e.g. scripting 
language plugins.  If it had been an easy problem domain to fix, it 
would have been fixed a long time ago, but it wasn't.
