Pin selection.

I have read a lot of conflict over using the "unused" pairs (pairs 3 &
4). Why not do the following. Use pairs 3 & 4 but allow two
implementations. Allow both direct use and phantom use. That way people
why never intend to implement Gigabit Ethernet (e.g., a small office)
can power direct over the unused pairs while people who look to the
future can spend a little more and get the phantom solution.

Sorry I cannot make it to the meeting.
