Yes! Let's work together on a bit of UI design for that. For the
internals, I'm happy to work with whomever does the Sugar side, making
sure it makes sense with all the different technical scenarios.

One of the thoughts I have on this specific topic is that we want to
associate the XS icon to the AP, and/or have a badge on any AP that
can reach an XS.

Fork off a discussion for this?
