There's no place like your Regional Service Provider?

Anyone else concerned over a rumored push towards eliminating Regional Service Providers for OCLC?

Waldo has sent out a letter to NYLINK members indicated that they could save a certain percentage by going through OCLC directly. It does outline certain services that you would give up and includes your NYLINK membership in the cost savings (Since supposedly you won't need them anymore.)

Normally I'm an OCLC-girl, but I find this new-found advertising of their direct service suspicious.
