Well, you are not alone;  you have my vote. The basic philosophy behind
my vote is: "no matter how you lock a door, there is always a way to
open it". In fact, the best way is  to have no door at all. Zero
tolerance of theft behavior at IXP is the most sound deterrent. Let's
give them the keys and dare them to be discovered!
