Well I'd like to be able to plug in the cable router and the DSL
router at home and have it all just work.  Just because it is 0.2%
today doesn't mean that it will be 0.2% in the future.  As home
users get more and more dependent on the internet working having
diverse, independent network connectivity will become more and more

Agreed.  But did you plug the cable router and the DSL router both
into your PC, or into yet another box that needs routing smarts and
then your PC just needs to know "talk to the smart box"?

(Hint - if the cable router and the DSL router are both plugged into
your PC, how do all the *other* devices in your house reach the internet? :)

I'm curious.  How did you get directly connected to the PC from the
above description?

The routers would be connected to the internal *network*.
