One of the reasons that we have continued with default is that some folks
will loose connectivity to nets behind ASs such as NSI which don't point
default. Jeff had sent a note indicating that you all were almost ready
to deploy something which would address this. Has that been done? I
wouldn't want to stop pointing default to AS1133 if a set of folks will
loose connectivity to the Pacific Rim.
