uniform agreement that the ratio of <10km to 10km to 40km applications is 10x or more. So given this view, it would be a very hard sell to convince the IEEE to only support a single 40km reach. In effect this would double the optics cost for most users.

Ah, single reach wasn't my intention. The point I tried to make was that if 10km and 40km is very near in price, and 3km is considerably cheaper, then it makes more sense to do 3km and 40km reaches to get two distinct prices and reaches.
