* Valdis Kletnieks:

According to the end to end argument, the only possible solution
to the problem, with no complete or correct alternatives, is to
let hosts directly participate in IGP activities.

If it's the "only possible spolution", how come 99.8% of the end nodes
do just fine without it? Oh yeah..

Because there's a CPE which acts as a mediator, or the host uses some
dial-up-type protocol which takes care of the IGP interaction.
