I've noticed that alot of the advise given is appropriate for
larger, i.e. tier 1, setups but isn't necessarily as useful
for tier 2/3/N+1.
Things that work great in large scale might be unweildy or not
even feasable on a smaller scale and vice-versa.
North American Network Operators aren't necessarily just tier 1's...
This might be one of the causes of "energetic" discussion when one tier
answers what makes sense for its scale but another tier is puzzled why
anyone would ever consider such an approach.
To avoid confusion in the future it might be helpful for both
questioner's and answerers to mention what scale their addressing
in the question/answer.
Just a suggestion,
