I would suggest that it is also ISP's who do not hire security consultants.
Consulting fees tend to come from departmental budgets, and almost
every network engineer I have ever met fancies themselves a security
expert. There isn't alot of incentive for them to get a third party
opinion, because of a lack of faith in the clue of most consultants, and
a general aversion to having anyone touch the delicate house of cards
many network engineers have constructed.
Maybe Cisco could add this as a default requirement of the configuration
that had to be explicitly disabled? In fact, it would be nice if all
protocol configurations had to have their authentication manually
