One can point default at someone whether or not they are peering with the
person. I am somewhat confused by the thought that people believe that
they need to be peering with someone to have that person point default at
them. I could (I don't, but I could), point default at /anyone/ on the
same switch fabric as me, whether they are peering with me or not. Why do
people continue to tie these 2 issues together?
