[j-nsp] aggregates - active/passive option

I believe the passive option when used with aggregate / generated routes 
  will cause the route to be continually installed in the routing and 
forwarding tables, even in light of no contributing routes.  However, if 
there are no contributing routes, the next-hop will be set to reject.
