Moved to outages-discussion.

This seems like outages-discussion at outages.org at best and likely more 
suited to nanog.  I don't see anything related to an outage on this.

On the surface, why not do discrete L3 links and equal-cost across the 
members rather than shoving L2 redundancy and complexity (MC-LAG) in the 
middle only to stuff L3 redundancy back over top of it (multiple IPs & 
discrete routing protocol sessions)?
