In this case there would be valley-free paths [C1 A P2], [C2 A P1]
not allowed because of A's policy. Though such a policy might be
this is a case where the set of paths generated from the topology with
valley-free rule contains paths that would not occur in reality.
I think that yes, the valley-free property is a necessary but not
