Well Colin,
Just to refresh your mind:
It was not that long ago since VG-Anylan was competing with 100Base-TX,
and TX, T2 and T4 were competing physical standard.

Personally I don't consider that a disaster in the market place!

If you don't give freedom to people to design what they believe they
need in their market segment, I'm convinced standardization will 
take longer.

So I would prefer one 10GMII, and have several competing physical
implementation. Then you will really see who follows the KISS principal.
