As a long time fan of David Isen, I almost fell off my chair laughing at
that, Michael: Bell *wanted* things -- specifically the network -- smart
and complicated; Isen's POV, which got him... well, I don't know if
"laughed out of" AT&T is the right way to phrase it, but it's close enough,
Stupid network; smart endpoints.
That seems entirely compatible with the proposed preference for IPv6
which you dismiss above as Bellhead.
