Building Control System Integrator Perspective
I come from the BMS (building management systems)/FMS (facility management systems) space and tyically we are rolled into ICS/SCADA.  While a close fit, it is not an exact fit.  Our communtiy is trying to design and implement control systems securely.  However, older systems, for the most part, are forgotten.  It is these systems that this list impacts greatly.  Too many of us left behind default username and passwords as well leaving ports set to the default port.  This article emphasizes the need for us, the BMS/FMS integrators, to reach out to our installed customer base and at lease let them know that these systems need have the default settings changed.

Acronyms
This was a very interesting article but I have one peeve, usage of acronyms w/o spelling out their full name at the first use. Given how technical the article is I believe it's necessary (and proper manual of style). Given my casual interest I had to look up quite a few. Otherwise, nice article.
