Where do you draw the line?  Should we force all 10/100 interfaces
to default to 10Mb because some Cisco switches fail to autonegotiate
the rate?  If we turn off every interesting feature because it might
hurt someone, somewhere, then we're gonna wind up with not much left...

As always, just my opinion,
