in terms of WDM, it nicely lends itself to PCI Express protocol- where lanes are bonded together (from x2 to x16)to increase port speed. WDM makes repurposing simple for transceiver makers. And since PCIe is inherently a short reach technology, would only complement the Ethernet space.
Would seem like a 'win-win-win' to me! :-)
Nice article Rick. I should mention that the bullet items separating proposals out by company were not provided by me, but probably gleaned from the IEEE P802.3bm website.

Standards are good for commerce and the consumer, at a high level.

Is it too early to be locking things down in 100 Gb/s standards?
