Ummm, while we *do* own both ends, this doesn't mean we *trust* both
ends.  After all the CPE router is in the customer premises - and we have
no control who might be fiddling with it while we're not looking.

So "learning of dynamic routes from CPE routers will only be done in a
very controlled way".  Which *can* be done with RIP just fine, btw :-)

USENET is *not* the non-clickable part of WWW!
