Return to Step 1 - "why, if you have customers actually *liking* your
vendor-lock-in features, why would you stop shipping them?".

Actually they seem to be really liking that... ASR920 doesn't do HSRPv2
(though it *does* support HSRPv1).  So, if you have a 2901 + ASR920
as router pair, no IPv6 first-hop redundancy for you (while ASR920 will 
do VRRP instead, 2901 won't).

USENET is *not* the non-clickable part of WWW!
