This is effectively the way we do ISDN PRI backup -- the BGP host
isn't (necessarily) in the same router that is actually switching
the traffic. So it does work, yes. (This is all with Ciscos, BTW.)
Yes, PCs and other workstations can route traffic too. We know that.
But as has been noted, this has little or nothing to with with the
I-D, and probably nothing to do with the CIDR FAQ either. It
would be very beneficial if everybody tried to stay on track.
