Gigabit Ethernet is cheap because of volume, volume, volume. 
What do you think will happen when the market is splintered like that?

Do you seriously expect to need big amounts of 2.5 Gbps (over, say, 10 
Gbps) interfaces in your network in three years, when a possible 
industry standard will be there at the very earliest?
