Let me know where you find those Cat6 rated Amphenol cables at. That's 
the reason I've heard behind the demise of RJ21 connectors. Having used 
a couple 5500s full of them out to patch panels, they were convenient 
and easier to swap out a module if you didn't have the tiny fine-pitch 
screws get cross threaded when they were put in.  Just hope you don't 
have to wrestle the bundle of cables out of the way, or you'll feel like 
a boa constrictor got loose in the server room.
