ITYM two big transit LANs -- one must be prepared for a
switch to fail.
These're going to be router-to-router connections (each AR
is connected to both CRs) and I had thought about tying them
all into one VLAN vs. PTP Gig-E.  I was just trying to find
out the operational benefits of either design.
If your physical topology is going to be PTP links, then you should go with PTP at the logical level as well. Making one topology look like another is generally a bad idea.
