And the university does not have a network diagram? and implementing a network 

The information, referenced as at start, was about design options not about a 'network plan' being reviewed

These kinds of options and issues also apply to any network and may not be peculiar to universities. In the end you have a design and resource plan

Ok, fix it but a fix where is needed. I wonder if a fix by policy is what's needed in this case

We are actually imposing constraints eg end-user category, now 5:1 expectation, etc
