Interesting. Your source is mistaken... Quoting from the Ethernet
Specification, Version 2 (DEC/Intel/Xerox), section 7.6.2:

  regular 2.5 meters spacing; a transceiver may be placed at any mark
  on the cable. This guarantees both a minimum spacing between

  spacing of transceivers to insure non-alignment on fractional
  wavelength boundaries.

The 802.3 spec agrees with this (section
