Yes there is a major advantage to control of the link and obviously cost,
but then retries, HLR lookups etc will need to be in the SMSC driver which
is outside the scope of what Kannel is designed to do (IMHO) so this would
need to be thought about very carefully if done.

If you do write an open source SMSC driver for SS7 I'm sure there will be
many very happy people :)
