I believe the Uptime Institute has some statistics showing EPO problems
are one of the top five reasons for critical facility outages.
Almost no telco CO's have facility-wide EPOs.
Equinix facilities do not have facility-wide EPOs.

The fire code is your friend. Learn it, use it, follow it. It doesn't
always say what everything thinks it says. Following the code, you can
build a telecommunications facility without an EPO next to every door.
