                A year or so after the Host RFC, maybe we could share
        LANalyzer (or your favorite Ethernet analyzer) programs that check all
        the RFC points? Let the LANalyzer do the talking! Probably
        impractical, but wouldn't be nice to plug a new box into a protocol
        testing box and watch the red light and the green light? (I know, I'm
        lazy and no fun at all.)

Kent,

Your box is going to have several different shades of yellow lights on it,
shading between red and green. It is not a simple world, as the
Host Requirements Working Group has repeatedly rediscovered.
