Can cisco introduce a product wide order code that means "do not ship the item with all the additional paper and console/aux cables". Often the boxes are opened and all the user manuals etc are not even looked at, they are just bined. I'm sure most large organisations have draws full of console/aux cables, so make it optional.
Should be a no cost option to remove unwanted items.
This may even help cisco meet there 2012 25% reduction in green house gas.
