Subject Re: GUI question about system VMs

It may also (conceptually) be because routers are dedicated to users
(a router per isolated network or VPC, for example), whereas CPVM and
SSVM provide management services for your cloud. systemvm routers used
to be placed under a section with the CPVM and SSVMs, I think it was
decided to break them out on the UI from an admin perspective.
