Is anyone using non GigE for the RAC Interconnect?

Good morning all,
I'm putting material together for a presentation and in this context was wondering if anyone was using anything other than 1GigE and UDP for the RAC Interconnect. Exadata - users need not reply ;)
Most new hardware you order such as the BL68x blades (which I love!) come with 10G Ethernet adapters but I assume the majority of RAC deployments hasn't made the transition to 10GE yet. Or am I wrong?
Now while 1GE is probably the rule with 10GE quickly catching up, what's the situation for Infiniband-anyone outside the Exadata world using it? One of the companies I worked for a while back used IP over Infiniband, but that seems quite wasteful compared to the use of the RDS protocol (which also uses Infiniband).
All opinions and observations greatly appreciated!
