One argument that's possible to make is that standardisation and 
commoditisation of all the relevant features has to some extent 
already--and will in the future further--reduce the need for this concern.

In other words, it's more and more common to find CPE and network 
elements that support any conceivable ITU-T codec, any reasonable ptime, 
all forms of DTMF relay, etc.

Obviously, we're not there yet.  But I would wager that those 
capabilities are going to converge faster than it would take for any of 
the big operators to overhaul their networks with outboard transcoding 
gear or additional feature cards in every POP and so on.
