Ok, that could be used then.  All I know is that telnet would try to get rcmd.isua keys, which does not exist
(isua -> { isu1, isu2 }) and telnet would try rcmd.ftp
(ftp -> net-1)

The changes work just fine for me, and others tested them as well (all
at ISU, however...)

Do they not work, are wrong, or just not as small as needed?
