Don't assume it's not needed for the 75xx, or anything else for that
matter.  Many networks are single connected to routers that are also
acting multihomed to core providers and these boxes are being used.

        Usially the low-end traffic is symmetrical. The problem is that
CEF code 
        and other anty-frauding realisations are appearing for the
        routers, white they are nessesary for the low-end routers and
useless for 
        the core routers. For cisco, we need this future for
        ASAP, 720x slightly, and don't need it for 75xx at all.
