RE: Nomenclature update
The Mbps is not hidden. It is actually defined in clause 1.2.3.
Frankly, I don't care if we call it 10kBASE-, 10GBASE- or 10,000BASE-, as
long as the Task Force as a whole supports it, and 802 and 802.3 are okay
with it. The reason I didn't use 10GBASE- was that it wasn't correct based
upon our current standard.

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,
'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.
do not say '10kilo Megabit per second'. They would just say
