Unrelated, but my main driver with NGPON2 was to be able to have a
GPON OLT and an NGPON2 OLT on the same fibre so I can migrate away
from a certain grief causing vendor one ONT a time.

>From what I read about the way NGPON2 manages wavelengths/which
wavelengths are used I think what I want to do should be possible.

It also looked like running multiple OLT's on the same fibre was
entirely possible for various reasons also due to the above.
