What about just making inventory tracking easier? (eg. "We have 32 ATMs that are all featurewise identical and they're all interchangeable" vs. "We have 22 ATMS with feature X and 10 w/o feature X") Now, to get it somewhat related to network stuff: s/atm/router/ s/features/capabilities/ s/location/network function/ <lurk>\
