3) These sites aren't turning up /hundreds/ of T-1's and other links on a
given week.

4) Points of entry into these networks are very limited, and therefore the
network manager has much more control over what comes into and out of his
network as far as both data and routing advertisements.

5) These networks are not nearly large enough at this point in time to
seriously push hardware to/beyond its design specifications.

6) Traffic patterns are relativelty predictable, you don't suddenly have
triple the traffic over one link that you didn't have yesterday.

Anyone care to add to the list?
