reflecting on my experiences in such facilities...

usually all i've ever needed to do at the door is sign in after proving
that i work for a company that has colo space. my boxes of equipment
have never been inspected.

therefore, to attack many colo facilities, it is sufficient to sign
contracts that i never intend to honor and then carry boxes of "stuff"
up that has nothing to do with colo.
