It's in a couple of non-obvious ways special to Cisco boxes.  I didn't
know about the non-routeability, but I can say for sure that it makes
weird access-list entries (packets sourced from that get
denied in ACLs will make completely different log entries than packets
sourced from non-127/8-IPs - at least in 12.0, and AFAIR as well on

There's some backing to it, though.  Either the host or router
requirements RFC (forgot which one) states absolutely clearly that 
these addresses MUST NOT appear on the wire.
