I thought the same thing when Cisco rolled out the 6800s about a month 
ago.  I saw a lot of features that looked like they were put in 
specifically to poach prospective Nexus customers.

>From what I've seen/heard/read, Cisco's corporate structure is more like a 
loose collection of business units rather than a single corporate 
entity.  The BUs have their own internal structure, budget, product 
development teams, etc.  Product lines from one business unit sometimes 
complete with very similar product lines fromanother business unit.

There are advantages and disadvantages to both approaches...
