I would expect Nick meant 40G options to take advantage of the new
440G/slot SUP6T & PFC4-E hardware (or even, the full 220G/slot of SUP2T
in the 6807).

At the moment, none of the known cards can exceed 160G to the fabric,
and most don't exceed 80G.

Couple that with uncertainty on >1M FIB scale, and it's a pretty poor
show; I'm quite glad to be far and away from Cat6k! :)
