What's the potential for devalue?  CCIE is an implementation or "doing"
exam.  CCDE is a design exam.

Now, if an employer WANTS to have someone with a CCIE + CCDE, how is that a
devalue?   That is just multiple areas of expertise.

Not everyone who can do implementation can design a large network.
Likewise, not everyone who can design can actually configure the specifics. 

Think of it as different tracks, or complimentary certs.  It certainly isn't
a devaluation!

So Is the CCDE going to devalue the CCIE at all?  Will cisco require 4
CCIE's/CCDE now?

doing a design lab seems alittle less scary no?
