Also, the problem isn't JUST the RP... there are many parts to this
problem, focus on the RP alone isn't going to solve the problem in the
longer term. I suspect this is also in the area of 'a PITA to get
tested/validated/installed' for any trivially sized network since it
may require architectural changes to the devices.
