I am supportive of 850 nm technology because I can operate a low cost VCSEL
at 10 Gb/s with only few mA.

I am hesitant of pushing a new specialty fiber down the throat of my customers
every few years. The standard should define the nominal distance based on existing
multimode fiber, but individual manufactures may want to advertise extra reach with
the new high bandwidth fiber.
Why would I want to pull a new expensive high bandwidth multimode fiber, when it will be
lower cost to use the existing single mode fiber.
Finally how I am suppose to keep track of all these fibers in the field?
