Functional Disaggregation
This disaggregation for networks will be beneficial because it can create smaller and new things easier for networks.

a measured approach
It reminded me of another conference where panelists were debating what elements could be virtualized in a network. One response was something along the lines of "Sure, we can virtualize almost anything, but that doesn't always make sense." Same thought here on disaggregation, especially if it creates more work on the management side.

Centralized vs. distributed approach
This seems to be a recurring theme in pretty much every aspect of technology - the proposition that something is more cost-effective or better managed at a <insert "centralized" OR "decentralized"> level. It's cyclical, and in some cases has a real impact and in others, sounds great until you find it affects some other aspect of running the network - as pointed out by ECI's Wilkinson and Infinera's Capuano.
