It may be true that we are an equal opprtunity committee, but the object
agreed upon by that committee states:

* Select only one of 10.000 Gbs or 9.58464 Gbs to standardize as the
MAC/PLS data rate

If you're saying you'd support a 10.000 Gbs MAC/PLS data rate with some
kind of flow control mechanism to get 9.58464 in a WAN PHY then I agree,
but you can't have both data rates unless we change the objective, right?
