I'm not sure what the purpose of that is, seems a bit arbitrary.

As I see it, this is a process, some short term improvements have been made as
an interim fix and response to vegas's community meeting but theres also more to
come before its complete.

Lets not get sidetracked with issues that arent there..

Merit has setup the nanog-futures list and made it public and open from the
outset.. that is the forum to take this discussion to but focus on what you want
not whats past or interim.
