Only from the engineers.  From the money people (Layer 8), they may be
hearing: "I want an inexpensive platform, and make it as easy to manage
as MS Windows, so I don't have to hire all these expensive network
engineers, eh?"

The trick may be to get the Layer 9 people to understand that this is a
losing proposition.
