Some vendors have asked and received this sort of thing, does huwei (which
I butchered the spelling of) want one? (or need one?) how about netgear
and their lovely NTP issue? or checkpoint or ... there are quite a few
vendors out there, some even attend NANOG. If they listened to their
customers I suspect they'd hear: "I want a secure platform!" quite loudly.

Only from the engineers.  From the money people (Layer 8), they may be
hearing: "I want an inexpensive platform, and make it as easy to manage
as MS Windows, so I don't have to hire all these expensive network
engineers, eh?"

The trick may be to get the Layer 9 people to understand that this is a
losing proposition.
