Guys sorry to jump in mid thread, however some of you might
know how do the voice carriers handle SLA's. I know our telco
voice guys seem to live on SLA's.

I can not rember the last time there was any kind of widespread
voice outage on an international network.

To me, the diverse route *is* the safety belt. If it does not work when it
is supposed to, I (or my mourning relatives) will sue the car companies arse
off - if the attribution for the failure rests with a design of
manufacturing flaw.

Safety / Seat belts are not decoration - and neither should a diverse route
or protection circuit be. (Yes, my English can boldly go... but I am still
waiting for the coffee to finish.)
