Well we do this (we also filter out some other things we
don't want to hear from other people), but this set me
thinking. Is there anyone who actually has a good reason
to propogate default and reserved addresses through the RA?
Wouldn't it be a good move for the RA itself to filter
these announcements (in addition to what's in the policy)?
