Keep in mind though that the idea is to filter "bad" routes, which means
BGP4 because that's the mechanism they are handled and this is not going
to change. So an LDAP-based solution would ultimately have to hook with
BGP anyway. Given the fact that the LDAP solution would require one more
box and one more protocol that would need to be managed, and that the
LDAP-to-BGP mechanism does not event exist as of today, please explain
me what makes the LDAP solution so superior to the BGP solution that it
balances the two pitfalls I just mentioned.
