Sorry, cannot pass this one up:

This nonsequitor is a common problem with those folks that like to use
"L2" and "L3" labels, rather than the _true_ name of things.

Router people and network people are one and the same -- L3 is "network".

Link (L2) people are now trying to build networks, and are reinventing
the router wheel discovered long ago by earlier network (L3) people.

Gosh, it is refreshing to have Sean back!  This list is a lot more
interesting.  Not on topic, but interesting....
