I think he is indeed getting at what I was getting at. The obvious  
use of preferential services is during emergencies, but this isn't  
actually about emergencies, it is about a preferential service.

Yes, emergency responders use manet networks among other things. I'm  
at a complete loss to say how the two issues became companded. 9/11  
was an instance in which telecommunications facilities were damaged,  
and that happened in Katrina as well. It didn't happen when that  
nutcase threw Sarin Gas into a subway in Tokyo, though, but I  
guarantee that the GETS-equivalent was used that day to punch calls  
through busy lines. Ditto recent bombings in London, Spain, and  
elsewhere.

Let's not add noise where we don't need it.
