 You should move from SPECIAL to YES (although you

 folks at bit.nl think). should be NO (otherwise it
 wouldn't be link-local).

 Good example as to why to use authoratative sources only.

But most authoritative sources are too shy to make explicit
operational recommendations. 8-)

The authoritative sources put the data out there. What more can you ask of them? What more do you want? It's been said that the neutral parties (the authorities are supposed to be neutral) should not make business decisions for the industry. Recommending route filters is a business decision. Operational recommendations in general are business decisions.

Consider it lucky you have a choice here. The plain official version, William's marked up copy, and edits to William's on the list. You have a choice here, you can't beat that.

Inactionable unintelligence is bliss.
