Ok, that's not what you just said a few e-mails ago, but anyways... Lack 
of common routing policy is not a compelling reason for a discrete 
network, it is THE DEFINITION of a discrete network.

Again, not what you JUST SAID a few emails ago, but lets run with it... 
I DO have a compelling reason, and it just so happens to line up 
perfectly with one of the example compelling reasons provided in the 
policy... Is *THIS* now the part that you're disputing? I'd really love 
to figure out what your actual objection is, but every time you seem to 
make one and I prove it wrong you seem to make another one. If this is 
your objection, I'd be more than happy to disprove it (again), but lets 
be clear about it before I waste a lot of time typing. :)
