While this is true you may want to do some testing of the numbers. The last 
time I looked at this on 65xx the numbers were extremely low for vlan 
rates. It appeared as though cut-thru switching/routing across vlans was 
occurring (by default). In this case the vlan numbers may only reflect the 
connection setup stuff and not necessarily full traffic flows and could be 
misleading (very). I'm not sure if this is still the case with all 
versions/models. But I would recommend a review of the numbers before 
basing decisions on them (or even showing them to others making decisions) 
because there is a potential to be mislead if the above is still true.
