Test Route

From: bmanning@ISI.EDU

  Much as I like to debate RFC 1597 and Firewalls... That is not
  the topic of this thread.

  I was pointing out a useful (to me) hack to verify BGP peering
  and route generation w/o the need to "expose" routes that
  I might not be authoritative for.

  I would like to know if others think this was/is worthwhile?

If you don't propagate the route, why does it matter?
