There are many operator requirements to consider.
If you are talking about configuration (single or multiple boxes)
then I agree that sming and eos are not currently chartered
to meet these needs. (That's why I suggested we need an stdconf wg).

If you're talking about monitoring, then many operators have expressed
a need to have vendors actually implement MIBs in a timely and
consistent manner.  I believe sming and eos are (potentially)
making some progress in reducing the complexity and development costs
in this area.
