Our own PHYs as in have Rudy and SymbyoticEDA design them, or actually doing
them ourselves? ... because from discussion of this from a few months ago it
seems like designing our own PHYs would be a 5+ year undertaking.

The higher speed ethernet interfaces will be very important for the higher
power consumption higher-end market segments. Good idea.
