Another difference is the first speaks of service provider choice, and
the second refers to implementer choice.

Does anyone else have an opinion on the difference between these two
paragraphs...

There are several differences:

- state impairments are "optical impairments"
- limit impairments to "link impairments"
- restrict discussion to "out of service measurements"
- refer to "ITU-T standards" rather than "mechanisms
  and definitions defined by the ITU-T"
