It is just my personal opinion. I'm not sure how this has been defined in
IEEE802, but I feel that in 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and so on, the letter
'M' describing 'Megabit per second' is somewhat hidden. It is not that it
was non-existent. According to this theory, the 10Gi Ethernet can be
called '10GBASE-xxx' rather than '10kBASE-xxx'.
I think it is much easier for users/market to understand. People usually
do not say '10kilo Megabit per second'. They would just say "10Gigabit
