Although I've gone ahead and configured on aggregate for AU, I'm
not in a position right now to utilize it. Thus, we will continue
to request that specific nets get added.
Although Jeff may have additional reasons---his situation is a bit
more complex than ours---I just wanted to point out that DSI is in a
similar situation (as described), and does not need to do this.
Like NSI, the DSI is not capable of using aggregates internally, yet
we _do_ have aggregates in the PRDB (with no more-specific routes
listed) that are working fine (199.54/15 and 199.56.160/19). We
advertise individual (classful) nets within these blocks to NSFnet,
and they only propagate the aggregate to the rest of the net.
