	   Will there be one big FR network or will there be many
	   smaller virtual private FR networks?

At present there is no standard that I know of on how two FR networks
should be contatenated.  If you have an FR network from manufacture
X and I have one from manufacture Y, these have to be interconnected at
layer 3.  So, I would say that at least in the beginnig there will be
several smaller FR networks, both public and private.
