David, Tony, Thank you for bringing up the IPS must SWIP when address user

Scott, Thank you for putting the changes in context.

I oppose as written.  I support with the David/Tony friendly admendment.

Possible simple text addition:

I'd like to (mostly) stay out of the MUST/SHOULD discussion wrt
the requirement to SWIP if the intent is to route.
I prefer MUST over SHOULD and SHOULD over no advice.
I feel strongly that at the least the advice should be preserved.
