FWIW, my involvement with IETF, NANOG, et alia long predates my current
employment status. A quick look at RFC1338, RFC1519, etc. will verify that.

As I have stated before, I do not speak for my employer. Quite the contrary
since I feel my comments here reflect an advocacy for the large network
operations community that at times is contrary to a vendor's interests (the
best thing that could happen to a router vendor would be a return to the
replace-the-core-every-2-or-3-years heyday of the 90s); they are based on my
first-hand experience in that community from 1988 to 2001.
