I missed this earlier but the definition of WAN interface seems a bit
"WAN interface - a single network interface on the CPE Router that
is used to connect the router to the access network of the Service
Remove the word single as some vendors may want to have the option of
providing additional interfaces on the WAN link for bridging additional
devices to the subnet directly connected to the service provider.
Additional WAN interfaces are particularly helpful for facilitating
troubleshooting of the Service Provider to customer link.
Additionally, for those vendors that wish to integrate the layer 2
(DSL/cable) modem as part of the CPE router (where the "WAN" encapsulation
is not ethernet), perhaps a separately named interface definition might be
appropriate to avoid confusion with "WAN".
