So we bought a bunch of ASR1009x along with IOS-XE and are encountering 
the joy of Smart licensing.

Once we have our license established, do we need to leave the 
"call-home" section?

To me it screams "security violation" and something I'd like to 
permanently disable after getting the license activated.

Or does Cisco like to have their routers constantly ping the mothership 
in regards to the licensing?
