I agree.  And if we can setup the infrastructure such that the
drivers can indicate the speed of the link they are communicating
on, then we can set sane default values on the automatically
created subnet routes.

These would need to be refreshed when link state changes, but
we have the mechanics for that kind of device event stuff
already.
